Dawlish Warren

Continued erosion at Dawlish Warren means visitors are reminded to take extra care when visiting. Access along the site, to and from the bird hide and Warren Point, is via the beach only, with a risk of being cut off for a period either side of high water! Further information is available on the Teignbridge District Council website:

Presumed Vagrant Emperor

Churston Cove Brixham Devon 3/4/2017. Sorry no photos. What else could a large Hawker type be at this time of year considering there has been several in Cornwall and masses in north-west Africa?

Morte Point

1030 -1130 1st April I watched this shrew carrying nesting material to a large hole beneath a slab of rock. This hole has been used by Adders over the years so the prospects of breeding success are probably not great!

South Milton, Thurlestone

A lovely walk in the sun along the reed bed at South Milton produced quite a few butterflies on the wing. Plenty of Peacock, Small Tortoiseshell, Small White and a Comma basking in the sun outside the ringing hut.
