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.

Monday 26th June 2017

Great start to Monday morning.

On my way to work this morning,  I watched as some rspca ladies unloaded a cage containing a seal.I offered to help carry the cage to the shore line which they accepted,  then stayed to watch as this pup nervously entered the water. I didn't stay to see but I am told it quite happily stayed around a while before moving off.

Seal release combemartin.
