Closure of Dawlish Warren dune path

We have been informed that due to storm damage and erosion the dune path that provides access to the bird hide has been closed as it is unsafe. Access from Groyne 10 to Groyne 15 will only be via the beach and is subject to tides.

Hisley Wood NR, Bovey Valley - #2 Here Be Dragons!

Used to seeing Keeled Skimmers on boggy heath or moor but this male was defending a puddle on the main path, next to the river. When a female came along, they got down to business.
