Rare Jays Spotted

Jays description

A pair of rarely seen jays have been spotted by one of our residents here at Red Deer Village!

A Red Deer Village resident has reported a pair of jays that have began feeding in their back garden. Jays have mostly been driven out of Scotland, with sightings being very scarce. So it’s fantastic to see a pair has come to Red Deer Village and Holiday Park! We’d love it if you can take a picture and email it to us!
