Dawlish Warren

Please take extra care when visiting Dawlish Warren. We have been informed that due to the recent bad weather there has been significant erosion from Groyne 10 eastwards. This means that access along the site, to and from Warren Point (and the bird hide) will be via the beach only, with a risk of being cut off for a period either side of high water! Signs have been put up to alert people to the hazards, but people need to be aware that access routes that they have become used to may not be available and they need to exercise extreme caution,  with the possibility of being cut off by the tide, and people are strongly urged not to try climbing the sand cliffs. 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!
