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.

Tuesday 16th August
Had a report of two juvenile Black Tern (J Morgan) whilst at work so I rushed over after work and fortunately they were still present. Also there was the Little Gull which I didn’t see last night. I was a little pushed for time but the Common Sandpiper was still there and a Kingfisher flew across the car park. Can’t wait to get a little more time and the edge is looking really good for waders. Yesterdays Turnstone was near enough the same date as the one last year. I managed a few photographs not up to the standard of the professionals.
