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:

Lundy trip

Great trip yesterday to Lundy, Thanks to all organisers. Saw our first ever Dottrel. Also managed a Turtle Dove,which was with all the Collared Doves in the valley as we came up from the boat.

If the Gentleman who was sitting quietly as the Dottrel walked past him would like to contact me I have some great pictures of the two of them.
