Tuesday 14th 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 Slavonian Grebe was in the estuary with six Whimbrel, five Curlew, three Black and a Bar-tailed Godwit. Elsewhere 20 Sanderling and two Dunlin were on the beach, a Red-throated Diver was offshore and the first fledged Greenfinch were on the wing.

Wildlife News: The first Brown Argus of the year were on the wing along with several Common Blue.
