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.
Anther quiet day with counts from the estuary limited to 28 Sanderling, 21 Dunlin, 18 Curlew, 14 Whimbrel, five Sandwich Tern and a Bar-tailed Godwit. Elsewhere two Wheatear were on Warren Point and the Red-throated Diver.
Wildlife News: A new spider for the Recording Area was found today, a single Bleeding Heart Spider Nigma puella, also noted several Gorse Orb-weaver Agalenatea redii. Other records included Grey and Speckled Bush-cricket nymphs, with a single Wall butterfly and ten Spurge Bug Dicranocephalus agilis on Warren Point.
