Sunday 19th 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.

A Spotted Flycatcher in the Entrance Bushes was a lone arrival with 20 Swallow, six Swift, five House and a Sand Martin passing through. Elsewhere the Slavonian Grebe was off Cockwood with 40 Sanderling, 36 Dunlin, 33 Ringed Plover, four Whimbrel, three Turnstone, two Bar-tailed Godwit and a Grey Plover also in the estuary.

Wildlife News: A couple of Brown Argus were on the wing with Orange-tip, Common Blue, Small Copper, Speckled Wood and Green-veined White also on the wing.
