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.
No sign of the Velvet Scoter offshore but ten Red-throated Diver flew south early morning. Elsewhere the Slavonian Grebe, two Eider, two Goldeneye and a Kingfisher were off Cockwood and nine Shoveler were on the Main Pond.
