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.

Common Tern numbers continue to rise
Steve Cawthray email me to say he had 32 Common Tern at Shustoke on Thursday. Another couple of weeks and we should be seeing a few more birds passing.
