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 2nd September
Spent an hours this evening, lots of gulls about 1500 BH Gulls, 15 Herring Gull, 50 LBB Gull. Two Yellow Wagtail were present and two Common Sandpiper. Five Swallow and a Sand Martin passed through but on the whole it was rather quiet.
