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.
A low tide visit saw two Greenshank and a Lapwing on the mudflats whilst offshore there were three Common Scoter and just 14 Great-crested Grebe, 90% down on this time last year. Elsewhere a Coal Tit and two Chiffchaff were in the Entrance Bushes.
