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 19th February
Managed to get away from work a little earlier than normal and had a try for the two Med Gulls present yesterday. Steve Cawthray and Steve Haynes were on site and fortunately one of the birds was in the roost. There were around a dozen Goosander and a few bits and pieces.
