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:

Yellow wagtails ~ South Brent

The following report yesterday from Peter Reay ~ 14 Yellow Wagtails this morning on wires running between Whinfield and Underhill and they were then on that manicured lawn and fence above Hilldene, South Brent.

I checked early this morning and saw six Yellow Wagtails above Hilldene and on the garden of that property on the "manicured lawn".

Later in the morning visited again and counted nine birds at one time, most appear to be juveniles.

Green Woodpecker calling, two Stock doves and Raven overhead.
