Six :) . Hopefully they are making a comeback having all but disappeared in the UK (down 86% since 1976) although as you are near the coast that is one of their stronger locations. Still lovely shots.

Re: Decided to go long - but what to choose?

Ron, I've only gotten close to Jays on the continent where they are apparently less jumpy, I'm told. So not had that difficulty. I would be tempted to take two shots and stitch them panorama style....
