Sunday 3rd 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.

Seawatching during the day was largely uneventful with c130 Gannet, 75 Kittiwake and c40 Fulmar south along with six Common Scoter and a Red-throated Diver. Elsewhere counts from the estuary included 440 Oystercatcher, 230 Brent Geese, 47 Grey Plover, 37 Knot, 23 Sanderling, three Eider and the Slavonian Grebe.
