Friday 26th April

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 Sedge Warbler at the Main Pond and a single Wheatear were the only evidence of ongoing passerine migration with three Great Northern Diver and an Arctic Skua passing offshore. Elsewhere 15 Whimbrel, five Bar-tailed Godwit and the Brent Goose were in the estuary and the first Mallard brood was out on the Main Pond.
