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.

Airy Point

After a return journey of 7 miles in a pair of wellington boots in 21C some of which was in soft sand, I was rewarded with a male Kentish Plover.

As far as I remember in over 60 years of walking the sands, this is only my second sighting of Kentish Plover.

I have a feeling that it may turn up on the Skern next but do not hold it against me if not!
