Friday 25th January

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.

Wader counts over the high tide included 960 Dunlin, 190 Grey Plover, 85 Knot, 34 Sanderling, eight Bar-tailed Godwit and a Lapwing with three Eider and a Mediterranean Gull also in the estuary. Elsewhere the Velvet Scoter, 65 Great-crested Grebe and eight Red-throated Diver were offshore and nine Shoveler were on the Main Pond.
