We started our night filming last season on 29 September. The shoot was notable because I filmed Red Triangle Slugs for the only time. Tonight, we started the new season in Joalah an incredible 6 weeks later than last year. Besides my trip to Longreach and the cool weather, the unavailability of one or other of the crew, compounded this season’s rocky start. Tonight’s haul was a female Harvestman, an earth worm, a skink, an eel, and,  a male Trapdoor Spider, not lurking in its burrow, but, unusually, on the prowl.
