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.

Thursday 28th August
The Little Gull was still present joined by a Black Tern (Bobby D) in the evening there were also two Common Tern. It was too windy for any warblers so I didn’t see too much in the way of passerines.
