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 Black-necked Grebe of the year was off John's Watch this morning with a Black-Throated Diver also reported offshore along with two Red-Throated and a Great Northern Diver, 80+ Great Crested Grebe and two Common Scoter. Elsewhere 11 Cirl Bunting were along the Back Path and three Eider, a Great Northern Diver and the Slavonian Grebe were off Cockwood.
