Wednesday 20th March

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 visit for the evening high tide saw counts of 202 Oystercatcher, 68 Redshank, 64 Dark and two Pale-bellied Brent Geese, 27 Turnstone, 15 Sanderling, five Greenshank, three Dunlin and three Ringed Plover, only the second record of the year. Elsewhere two Sand Martin flew through, two Wheatear, including the first female, were on the Golf Course and four Shoveler were at the Main Pond.
