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.

Work in the way
I have been too busy to get over this week and again I am stuck at work but there have been three Red-crested Pochard (A Dean). I doubt where they will survive the weekend sailing but I hope to get over tomorrow morning so we will see!
I was wrong!
3 Red Crested Pochards were still present today on the small pool 1 male, 2 females. (Keith Barnsley)
