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.

Saturday 27th October
Over at sunrise this morning but no sign of the Red-breasted Merganser, in fact although it was a beautiful morning there was little of note, there are however good numbers of Fieldfare around with around 40 in a tree by my house.
