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.

Re: Red Damsel at Velator (Yesterday - 22.4.1, Jon Turner)

FYI Jon:

There are only 2 Red Damsels, Large Red & Small Red. Large Red is the most common witha wider range of habitats. If the weather is good it can be seen from mid April, being one of the first dragons or damsels to appear.

Small Red Damsel typically wont be around for about couple of weeks or so. The males don't show any black on the tail & both sexes have red legs. Small Red is more restricted in habitat range, prefering moorland & heathland bogs, pools and seepages.

In short, yours was probably a Large Red. Hope this helps.
