At dusk could be seen a flock of about 30 Sandhill Cranes, a couple of wing-tagged Trumpeter Swans and various flocks of ducks (it was too dark to identify the latter). Some Trumpeters seem to be permanent residents of the area.
Bannister Lake is a small kettle lake located east of Ayr at the junction of Hwy. 24A (otherwise known as Pinehurst Road or Spragues Road or Cty. Rd. 75) and Wrigley Road or Cty Rd. 49. Park in the small lot 200 metres west of the junction and take the west path for 5-10 minutes. There is a fine viewing tower at the edge of the lake.
