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.

Clennon Valley Ponds, Goodrington

Good numbers of small red-eyed damselflies at the lower end of the bottom pond today, also a splendid male red veined darter. Other species around the ponds include black tailed skimmer (abundant), broad bodied chaser, emperor, a hawker species (which kept its distance) azure damselfly and blue tailed damselfly. I couldn't find the scarce chaser seen on the 3rd pond up 2 days ago but it could still be there among the numerous black tailed skimmers.
