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.

After waiting all day for a carpet fitter who didn’t arrive until 5.30pm I didn’t get over the reservoir for my daily walk until late. However, it proof worth while with four Dunlin and seven Common Sandpiper. Let’s see what next week brings.
