Bird Watching Breaks At The Langstone Cliff Hotel, Devon
The Langstone Cliff hotel is a popular destination for bird watching groups. It is conveniently located for the Dawlish Warren Nature reserve with its vast population waders and wildfowl. There is a public footpath leading from the hotel grounds down to the beach and the nature reserve at Dawlish Warren.
A local nature reserve and Site of Special Scientific Interest (SSSI), Dawlish Warren is a sand spit across the mouth of the Exe Estuary. On one side of the sand spit is a popular tourist beach and on the other inter tidal mud flats.
The mud flats provide vital feeding areas for internationally important populations of many waders and wildfowl, so the site is extremely popular with bird watchers. A purpose-built hide overlooks the main high tide roost.
