Sunday 5th 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 frosty start revealed migration remains almost at a standstill, with just two Willow Warbler on site and 21 Swallow, a Swift and a Sand Martin overhead. Elsewhere single Pale and Dark-bellied Brent Geese were in the estuary with 41 Dunlin, 22 Sanderling, 20 Whimbrel, three Sandwich Tern and a Turnstone.

Wildlife News: The first Blue-tailed Damselfly of the year was on the wing and a Fox was successfully chasing Rabbit on Warren Point.
