Sunday 12th 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.

Migration continues at a slow pace but a female Whinchat was in the Wryneck Plain and 117 Swallow flew through, the highest number this year, also overhead five Swift and five House Martin. Elsewhere counts over the high tide included 120 Dunlin, 15 Sanderling, four Whimbrel and four Ringed Plover with an Arctic Skua, just two Sandwich Tern and a Red-throated Diver offshore.
