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, Paignton

A male Cleopatra butterfly on buddleia on the far side of the 4th (top) pond. There have been a few (genuine?) British records but given previous odd butterfly records in the area this is sure to be a release. Other butterflies included red admiral, painted lady, comma, small copper and assorted whites. Many migrant hawker (mostly on the first pond), southern hawker, common darter and a late blue tailed damselfly. Best of the birds were kingfisher, dabchick, tufted duck, chiffchaff, sparrowhawk.
