Due to the significant erosion by storms at Dawlish Warren, Teignbridge District Council (TDC) is advising extreme caution when visiting. The dune path between groyne 10 – 18 is unsafe and a section of this path is completely closed with no access. Access to Warren Point is possible via the beach with the risk of being cut off for a period either side of each high tide. Access to the bird hide is only via Warren Point. The only access, up and back down, to these areas is along the beach at lower states of tide. Contact TDC for questions about access.
Counts from the estuary included 900+ Oystercatcher, 700+ Wigeon, 229 Curlew, 135 Brent Geese, 122 Grey Plover, 101 Redshank, 94 Bar-tailed Godwit, 92 Knot and a Goldeneye.
