Interesting question, I think it will if it's close enough to the sensor. If the sensor measures an amplitude that is higher than the threshold (850), it will think that it's a raindrop. But it will measure only one raindrop (per tenth of a second), even if the amplitude of thunder is a lot higher than the amplitude of a raindrop.
They probably don't, however for the purpose of our research we have assumed they do. We didn't include it in our project, but it is possible to measure the size of the rain drops with this disdrometer. The amplitude is higher for a larger rain drop than for a smaller one. If the disdrometer is calibrated right, you can measure the difference between the size of the rain drops as well!
