Wednesday 6th 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.

Records from the estuary included 347 Brent Geese, the highest count this winter, 39 Grey Plover, 22 Knot, 13 Red-breasted Merganser and the Slavonian Grebe.

Wildlife News: A Grey Seal was hauled out on a pontoon in the estuary.
