Due to the significant erosion at Dawlish Warren, Teignbridge District Council 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 and the bird hide is only possible via the beach with the risk of being cut off for a period either side of each high tide. The only access, up and back down, to these areas is along the beach at lower states of tide.
A foggy and wet Christmas but counts from the estuary included 318 Wigeon, 175 Teal, 161 Grey Plover, 142 Bar-tailed Godwit, 97 Knot, 14 Sanderling, an Eider and the first Water Pipit of the year.
