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.
The overnight snow delivered a cold weather movement, but in much lower numbers than only 20 miles further east. Heading west during the morning there were a minimum of 183 Skylark with 62 Fieldfare, 25 Meadow Pipit, 22 Redwing and single flocks of 17 Lapwing and 12 Golden Plover. Elsewhere the Velvet Scoter was off the seawall, the Slavonian Grebe was off Cockwood and six Shoveler were on the Main Pond.
