Thursday 7th February

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.

Seawatching saw 55 Red-throated and four Great Northern Diver head south early morning with the Velvet Scoter also offshore. Elsewhere counts from the estuary included 149 Grey Plover, 106 Knot, 29 Bar-tailed Godwit, 24 Turnstone, three Eider, a second winter Mediterranean Gull and the Slavonian Grebe.
