Monday 18th 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.

Counts from the estuary at high tide included 249 Oystercatcher, 115 Curlew, 76 Dark and two Pale-bellied Brent Geese, 39 Redshank, 35 Turnstone, 24 Grey Plover, 14 Dunlin, 11 Knot, 10 Bar-tailed Godwit, two Greenshank and the Slavonian Grebe. Elsewhere migrants were limited to two Chiffchaff.
