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 first Fulmar of the year, four Great Northern Diver and 120 Gannet flew south early morning with 19 Great-crested Grebe, two Common Scoter and a Red-throated Diver on the sea.
Counts from the estuary included 145 Teal, 130 Wigeon, just 37 Brent Geese and three Greenshank. Elsewhere five Shoveler were on the Main Pond and the Coal Tit was again on the feeders.
