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 offshore with 24 Great-crested Grebe, seven Common Scoter and a Red-throated Diver. Elsewhere three Shoveler and a Water Rail were at the Main Pond.
