Good score, Hilda :gflower:

Thank you Wildtuinman for the new challenge - something different!
It will certainly get us trawling all the sound effect libraries/apps. Could be good fun :hmz:

Well done Jaytea :clap: :clap: :clap: :clap:

While listening I have discovered some bird songs which I had heard but had no idea of their origin. So even if I don't get many correct I have learned a whole lot more by attempting this challenge..... :thanx: Wtm

Still listening........
