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.

Tuesday 22nd Janauary
Another lunchtime walk, good exercise but not much on show, so it came as a surprise when I returned to the car park to find Steve Haynes and Steve Cawthrey watching a male Common Scoter. Must try harder.
