Sunday 16th 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.

Another wet day with a low high tide, although this was raised by the amount of floodwater in the river. Counts from the hide included 900 Dunlin, 344 Wigeon, 276 Brent Geese, 88 Knot, 77 Shelduck, 52 Grey Plover, 40 Teal, 40 Redshank, four Greenshank, two Great Northern Diver, a Kingfisher and the Slavonian Grebe. Elsewhere another four Great Northern Diver were offshore and four Chiffchaff and a Coal Tit were on site.
