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.

Friday 26th October
There have been a few Fieldfare and Redwing over in the last few days. I notice on Rare Bird Alert that there was a Red-breasted Merganser reported from the Reservoir today (Friday).
