Sunday 6th 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.

The high pressure has kept the weather and birding static with little change on both fronts. A single Siskin around the alders was however new for the year. Also in the bushes two Redwing, two Chiffchaff and two Coal Tit with the Cetti's Warbler and eight Shoveler at the Main Pond.

Elsewhere four Red-throated Diver and 24 Great-crested Grebe were offshore, a Golden Plover flew over and three Eider, two Greenshank and the Slavonian Grebe were in the estuary.
