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.
Two Pale-bellied Brent Geese and four Greenshank were in the estuary on the rising tide with at least six Cirl Bunting and three Stonechat on site, a Raven overhead and five Shoveler and three Little Grebe on the Main Pond.
Wildlife News: Despite the continuing sunny conditions the cold and foggy start seems to be keeping insects in hibernation but at least a dozen Seven-spot Ladybird were emerging from a cut pile of Gorse on Warren Point.
