Saturday 27th April

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 fly through Hobby over the Bight was the pick of the few migrants, also on site 52 Whimbrel, 12 Dunlin and two Bar-tailed Godwit. Offshore two Great Northern and two Red-throated Diver flew south.

Wildlife News: The improved weather did see an increase in insect activity with Orange-tip, Small Copper and a Red Admiral on the wing along with a variety of hoverflies and solitary bees. In Greenland Lake the Green-winged Orchid has finally emerged, alongside the first Southern Marsh Orchid of the year.
