Thwarted by the weather a week ago while trying to benefit from Mark and Dan’s  availability during school holidays, we managed to do our first night filming of the new season. Robyn completed the party. Mark had opted for The Knoll National Park. The night was exquisitely still, if a little cool. During the day storms had raged to the North but spared the mountain. There was little activity except for a lone possum, some tube and trapdoor spiders and  a few snails. The only subject worth filming was a group comprising a semi-slug and two snails eating a fungus. At one point the antennae of all three were twitching in the same shot.
