Monday 1st 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.

An Osprey heading up river early morning, two Little Ringed Plover dropping briefly into the Bight late afternoon and a Whimbrel in the Railway Saltmarsh were the pick of the day's  sightings with passerine migrants in short supply. Also in the estuary eight Ringed Plover, four Bar-tailed Godwit, three Eider, three Dunlin, two Sanderling, two Greenshank and the Slavonian Grebe.
Elsewhere a Red-throated Diver and nine Sandwich Tern were offshore.
