Friday 21st December

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 hours seawatch early morning saw 280 Gannet head south with 200 auk sp, 180 Kittiwake, 15 Razorbill, two Red-throated and a Great Northern Diver. Elsewhere a Redshank was feeding in Greenland Lake and 205 Brent Geese, 34 Shelduck, 28 Turnstone, two immature male Eider and a Goldeneye were in the estuary.
