Tuesday 9th 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.

An early Arctic Tern was off John's Watch mid morning with 27 Sandwich and a Common Tern, also offshore two Shoveler and a Red-throated Diver. Elsewhere at least a dozen Willow Warbler were actively feeding around the Main Pond late evening and 12 Grey Plover, two Dark-bellied Brent Geese, two Dunlin, a Greenshank and the Slavonian Grebe were in the estuary.
