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.

Exminster Marshes

Not a bird, but very exciting nevertheless! Yesterday a Norfolk (Green-eyed) Hawker was found along the ditch running east from the end of Milbury Lane. I found it patrolling the same area again this morning, then long the wider drain at the end (just N of the 'bridge'). This is the first record of this species in SW England. Also present were 6 Scarce Chasers and - another new dragonfly for the Marshes (although present on Exeter Canal) - Small Red-eyed Damselfly. I know I'm biased, but dragonflies can provide a very satisfying alternative to birds in summer!

Hummingbird Hawkmoth Plympton

Delighted to see a Hummingbird Hawkmoth feeding on Verbena pot plant in my front garden at 10.00 today. Garden busy with families of House Sparrow and Blackbird as well as visits from Magpies feeding on a fat candle.
