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.
Seawatching for the first hour saw five Red-throated Diver head south with 35 Gannet and 30 auk sp. In the estuary the Slavonian Grebe was off Cockwood with low tide counts of 344 Brent Geese and 171 Wigeon. Elsewhere three Shoveler were on the Main Pond with two Coal Tit, five Chiffchaff, three Goldcrest and a Siskin on site.
