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 early Christmas present as the illegally moored boat was no longer in Shutterton Creek, having returned to Cockwood, still in the SPA but outside the recording area and voluntary exclusion zone. Also in the estuary the Slavonian Grebe, a Greenshank and 114 Brent Geese.
