A few things I forgot to add.
Black-tailed Native-hen were everywhere (50+ Salt Swamp Creek, 100s on two 
other swamps on Yorke Peninsula, lots around north Adelaide).
A swamp just north of Yorketown had most of the waterbirds I saw on the 
peninsula (and no Black or Wood Ducks). One salt lake on the Yorketown-Port 
Moorowrie Road had Avocets and Banded Stilt - virtually every other lake didn't 
have a bird (at least seen on the drive past).
Didn't see Little Wattlebirds or Superb Fairy-wren on YP (though some heard at 
Chinamans Cap were possibly the latter) - I would be interested in any info on 
their abundance. Saw both in Adelaide (though they were the most reluctant SFW 
I have ever dealt with).
