Friday 28th 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.

Millpond like conditions offshore revealed a significant increase in Great-crested Grebe with at least 81 counted from the seawall, also offshore at least 16 Red-throated Diver but no seaduck. Elsewhere the Cetti's Warbler was at the Main Pond, the late morning sunshine brought Cirl Bunting, Great Tit and Song Thrush into song and counts from the estuary included 90 Knot, 84 Bar-tailed Godwit, two Goldeneye, two Great Northern Diver, two Eider, a Greenshank and the Slavonian Grebe.
