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.

Wednesday 18th July
The 1st summer drake Common Scoter was still present in the evening although it took flight a couple of times with the Rescue Boat out on the water. There was a single Common Sandpiper but little else.
