It is a 6ft red robin which we moved to another spot in the garden but it hasn’t taken to its new place. We have given it loads of water and plant food as well but it’s seems to be shrivelling up.

It is likely being overfertilized and overwatered. Feeding should not occur until the roots have fully adjusted and healed. Watering should be kept to what is needed, only.

Feeding will not be necessary until it is established. You will know when that happens, as the new growth will come out very quickly.

Watering will need to be done, only, when the top 3 inches of soil are completely dry. This will prevent overwatering, which leads to root suffocation and infection.

I would treat with a fungicide. This article will help:
