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.
The Velvet Scoter remains off the seawall, mostly feeding on its own but sometimes with at least eight Common Scoter also in the bay. Also offshore 19 Great-crested Grebe. Elsewhere two Eider and the Slavonian Grebe were off Cockwood.
