Thursday 21st February

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.

A low tide visit saw the Velvet Scoter and 16 Great-crested Grebe still offshore, the Cetti's Warbler and four Shoveler on the Main Pond and eight Snipe and a Coal Tit also on site.

Wildlife News: Despite the unseasonal weather still no reports of any butterflies on site and flying insects limited to a few Buff-tailed Bumblebee on the wing. Elsewhere a Field Vole was along the Back Path.
