Thursday 29th November

Due to the significant erosion by storms at Dawlish Warren, Teignbridge District Council (TDC) 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 is possible via the beach with the risk of being cut off for a period either side of each high tide.  Access to the bird hide is only via Warren Point. The only access, up and back down, to these areas is along the beach at lower states of tide.  Contact TDC for questions about access.

A windy and occasionally wet day but the conditions didn't produce much offshore with 10 Kittiwake and three Fulmar the highlights passing offshore with five Eider on the sea. Elsewhere counts from the estuary included 206 Brent Geese, 204 Wigeon, 129 Grey Plover, 102 Great Black-backed Gull, 75 Shelduck, 71 Bar-tailed Godwit, 35 Knot, six Red-breasted Merganser, a Goldeneye and the Slavonian Grebe.
