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 highlight remained just outside the Recording Area with nine Cattle Egret circling Cockwood seen from the hide before heading inland. Offshore a flock of c38 Pale-bellied Brent Geese came in from the south early evening and eventually headed north up the estuary with 18 Sandwich Tern, nine Manx Shearwater, two Eider and a summer plumaged Great Northern Diver also off the seawall. Elsewhere 11 Grey Plover were present over high tide and at least four Willow Warbler arrived in the overnight fog.
