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.

Having gone to Scotland for what turned out to be an aborted trip hillwalking I received a call from the Good Captain to say he had a Kittiwake at Shustoke. However it had apparently gone by the evening.
