Tuesday 26th 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.

Counts from the estuary included 215 Curlew, 77 Turnstone and 50 Brent Geese. Elsewhere seven Shoveler and four Little Grebe were on the Main Pond with a Great Northern Diver and 23 Great-crested Grebe offshore. Overhead three Raven but a late report from last week concerns a total of 26 birds, if correct the second highest site record.
