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.

Wednesday 1st September
Good night at the Res, five Dunlin were feeding along the west bank, seemingly oblivious to the disturbance that the numerous people and dogs caused them. Warbler Corner had three Spotted Flycatcher, Whitethroat and several Chiffchaff.
