Robins do not eat seeds; they prefer to rummage in the soil in search of worms and larvae. They also prefer wild berries, such as blackberries or mulberries. If you plant these plants, the robins will definitely come to visit you.

In addition to plants that are food sources for robins, they need plants that will provide them with protection and shelter. During the nesting season in the UK, they prefer tall trees, as this is the safest place, and the crown of the trees is able to hide the nest from interfering factors.

If you want robins to nest on your site, but you can’t plant trees, then you can make a ledge for nests. The main thing is not to prevent robins from nesting and not to disturb them, otherwise they will defend themselves from you.
