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.

Reeves' Pheasant

First and only sighting to date of a Male Reeves' Pheasant, walking in shade at the bottom a garden on the afternoon of the 23rd June.  The pheasant was also caught on a camera trap which is set for the Black Fox: only infra red photos and video to date.  Will post when and if I ever get photos in daylight as I am avoiding use of flash photography: any advice as to technique would be gratefully received as the camera trap has been set for 2 weeks now with both cat food and organic lamb chop used as bait!
