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:

Little Gull

The Little Gull is still around. Seen again early this am flying NW towards the mouth of the Taw & Torridge Estuary.

Surprised nobody else has seen it especially on the Skern. Have I missed a posting from another observer?

Broadsands

Three Mediterranean Gulls at Broadsands this morning very close to the sea wall just after the high tide, one juvenile bird with white tag ring 3856, one first summer and a rather tatty adult bird.

Five juvenile Pied wagtails and a juvenile Ringed Plover, small group of House Martins perching on the overhead wires by the tea shack.

Over the Warberry area of Torquay 25 plus Swifts and on arriving back home at South Brent 11 Swifts seen over home.
