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.

Otter Estuary, East Devon

Two Cattle Egret resting on estuary below DB hide on east side at 11.00 hrs.  Unfortunately they took off with flock of gulls and I lost sight of them.  Probably gone up Otter valley but may still be around south of Whitebridge. 

Otherwise not a lot around and the scrapes have greened over with only small pools of water left.  A few Black headed and Gt Black-backed Gulls on the estuary.
