Thursday 18th 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.

The first three Whitethroat of the year were on site with the Black Redstart still present along the Dune Ridge. Other migrants included a Reed Warbler at the Main Pond, 12 Willow Warbler, 10 Blackcap and a Wheatear. Elsewhere single Great Northern and Red-throated Diver were offshore  

Wildlife News: The first Holly Blue and two Small Copper of the year were on the wing along with Comma, Orange-tip, Peacock and Speckled Wood.
