Shustoke Reservoir lies two miles east of Coleshill on th 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.

Monday 26th November
Received a text to say Steve Cawthray had found a Great Northern Diver at Shustoke. I managed to get out and see the bird. It was still there mid-afternoon there was also a Goldeneye and a fly over Raven.
