Shustoke Reservoir lies two miles east of Coleshill on the B4114 Coleshill to Furnace End Road, south of the River Bourne. At 1.5km west to east, the main pool is only 400m at its widest point. The River Bourne feeds the smaller eastern pool (8 acres), the water is then transferred to the main reservoir (92 acres). Disturbance at weekends can be a problem.

Thursday 19th August
With heavy rain falling I didn’t venture out of the car park. I scanned the gulls but the only bird of note was a Common Gull. There was also a single Common Sandpiper.
