Shustoke Reservoir lies two miles east of Coleshill on th 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.

Had a pleasant walk around today with the wife and mutt. There were around 20 Common Tern with this years young – so they must have bred locally. There was also a single Common Sandpiper and I had a Hobby but all in all it was very quiet.
