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 very windy day saw two Red-throated and a Great Northern Diver head south offshore with 298 Gannet, 80 Kittiwake and 17 Fulmar. Elsewhere counts from the estuary included 77 Common Gull, 67 Curlew, 40 Turnstone, 32 Grey Plover, 16 Redshank, 13 Knot, three Eider and a Greenshank.
