Answers are in :pray:

This is unashamedly a plug for all the bird challenges........ While listening to those calls in the challenge I have discovered a number of bird songs that I had heard but knew not from whence they came. :clap: To my delight there were some real surprises :dance: - birds that I didn't think would ever appear on my radar :clap:

So, folks, have a go even if it's just to discover what that bird is or to realise what is about but unsighted.

I am just so excited about my discoveries :dance: :dance: :dance: :dance: :dance: :dance: even if the answers are wrong :hmz:

I accidentally submitted my answers to the bird call challenge under my old forum name (AquaEco), but I suppose I can still be proud of getting 5 out of 6. I am 100% sure I know which one I got wrong. A familiar call, but I just couldn't ID it :wall: :wall:
Love the variation in approach to the challenge.
