Monday 6th May

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 Spotted Flycatcher of the year was around the Main Pond with a male Whinchat briefly in Greenland Lake; other migrants were limited to 21 Swallow and two Wheatear. Elsewhere counts from the estuary included 276 Oystercatcher, 60 Dunlin, 29 Sanderling, 20 Whimbrel, eight Ringed Plover, two Bar-tailed Godwit and the Slavonian Grebe.

Wildlife News: A Grey Seal was hauled up on one of the mussel barges.
