Hi Laurence, Leanne et al. 

Just to say I've seen Partridge pigeon on the dirt road between 
Berry Springs and Middle Arm, probably no more than 10 kilometers 
south of the Channel Island-Palmerston Road, so I don't think your 
sighting is unlikely.

I spent Christmas in Adelaide and managed a trip out to Inness 
National Park at the tip of the Yorke penisula, which proved to be a 
very pleasant spot, despite the constant wind and very friendly flies, 
and I spotted a few goodies including malleefowl and shy hylacola 
on the walking track that starts just west of the shop/pub. There were 
plenty of purple-gaped honeyeaters, rock parrots and southern 
scrub-robins at various places I visited but I didn't hear or see any 
western Whipbirds - wrong time of year I guess? However, the site 
of a pod of 12 dolphins herding a foaming shoal of fish into the 
shallows at Ethel Wreck was hard to beat.
