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.

Shustoke early November
Been really busy with holidays and decorating, so I have been neglecting the Reservoir but to summarise there has been two Red-breasted Merganser, Goldeneye, Knot, Redshank and a rather showy Kingfisher.
