Last bird of 2023 (1 Viewer)

I actually went out for an hour or so, managed to not get soaked either.

Last bird I recall seeing properly was a Great Crested Grebe, nice. (I must have seen some passerines in the dusk after but didn't register them, I'd already forgotten I was trying to see what the last bird of the year might be!) Outside my door I remembered and made an effort to listen for a minute - the Rooks calling and a distant Blackbird plicking the last heard (and pretty sure it will stay that way).
Two Green Sandpiper. They've been around for months, usually in the same location. Not there today but I found them in another area about a mile away, which is normally dry, but after all the heavy rain, it was badly flooded.
