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.

Exminster Marshes - Crane

At 1.15 this lunchtime, whilst stood at the middle car park I picked up a Crane flying over. It circled the marsh briefly before heading off high in the direction of Haldon where it was lost in the mist.
