Two reasons are possible:

1st: You don't have a clear line of sight to the airport and the landing/take off corridors. 
2nd: Only aircraft without ADS-B equipment aboard are going in and out to your airport (very unlikely). As for EDDV: I'm able to see about 70% of commercial traffic in/out this airport. The rest are non ADS-B airframes, that are listed in my flights, but never shown on map.

Are you able to see airframes with EGBB in the routings while they are more distant to your place?

If you have network access, go to NETWORK and under "Quick Filter" select "route", then enter "*-EGBB" no you will have only flight's to EGBB in your Network flight-list. Enter "EGBB-*" to see flights from EGBB.

If you have one on the Network, follow him and look if it transfers to your My Flights list at some point. Additionally you can add the flight id to your "ALERTS" under FLIGHT ID, make sure that Box "Activate Alerts for Network Flights" isn't set. If you do so, you will get a message if the flight comes into your reception area.

Remember only Airframes with ADS-B will show up on the map. Mode-S will occur in My Flights List only. Same often counts for ADS-B equipped airframes which are on reception edge.

EDIT:

The following flights to EGBB are going through my reception range:

Turkmenistan Airlines flights:

TUA411 ,TUA421, TUA425, TUA429 usually performed by a B752 (ADS-B equipped)
