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 late afternoon visit saw the first four Tufted Duck of the year off John's Watch, three males and a female, also offshore 30 Great-crested Grebe. Elsewhere records from the estuary included 300 Oystercatcher, 45 Dark-bellied and two Pale-bellied Brent Geese, 20 Dunlin, 14 Grey Plover and a Knot.
