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.

Monday 26th September
Didn’t get over until nearly 6.30pm this evening so I was restricted to the car park, but with the light good and gulls a little closer I managed to pick up a adult Yellow-legged Gull in the roost.
