Friday 24th May

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 increase in waders saw counts from the estuary included 149 Dunlin,77 Ringed Plover, 76 Sanderling and four Grey Plover. Elsewhere 18 Swift and six House Martin flew through.

 Ringed Plover - Lee Collins

Dunlin - Lee Collins This bird was probably ringed at Ynyslas, Wales, details to follow
