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 wet and windy weather saw 82 Ringed Plover, 27 Redshank, 14 Dunlin, 14 Bar-tailed Godwit, four Greenshank, three Sanderling and three Grey Plover over the high tide with an Osprey, three Eider and the Slavonian Grebe also in the estuary.
Elsewhere two Wheatear were on site with 60 Gannet, 30 Kittiwake, 21 Sandwich Tern, two Red-throated Diver and a Fulmar offshore.
