Nice list Louis, why not count birds heard from your place too, I've just heardCuckoo here for the first time this year so it's going on my list!
Have you seen the Garden/Yard list 2017 thread, it's always good to see what people are seeing/ hearing around the world(and it's not a 'my garden list can beat up yours' type of thread, which this one risks becoming;)).

Yes, adding birds I have heard is a good idea thanks. Now I will always be listening for a cuckoo. Also, I have now seen a Common Crane from my window.
