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:

Velator

It's been a poor year so far for numbers of butterflies, but if all these hatch maybe we'll have a bonus second brood of Red Admirals. There are several of these nettle-top collections in the reserve at the moment.
