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 18th May
Not a lot to report but there was a Tawny Owl calling in the same place as the early spring. Also I have had a cuckoo most mornings whilst walking the dog near Shustoke.
