Friday 8th March

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 Slavonian Grebe was off Cockwood with counts from the estuary including 42 Grey Plover, 14 Knot, three Eider and a Greenshank. Elsewhere a Red-legged Partridge was a surprise on Warren Point, but was apparently first seen last week, the Muscovy Duck in the saltmarsh has probably been 'wild' for longer though.
