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.

Friday 9th September
Having driven back this morning from rainy Scotland went for a walk around the reservoir this afternoon, it was rather quiet apart from a flock of 23 Common Tern that dropped in for 20 minutes before departing as quickly as they arrived.
