We started tonight’s shoot in The Knoll at the regular time. While still in the picnic area I filmed a 2 ½ metre Carpet Python slowly on the move. It looked as if it had almost recovered from its latest meal. The night was mild and there was much to see if not to film. We had just begun our return when for the first time ever we saw an eel in the pool beyond the bridge over Sandy Creek. Our previous night walk in the park was little over a month ago, just after rain had revitalised the rainforest, but the pool was almost without water and the creek was little more than a trickle. Further rain, culminating in over 200 mm in two days a week ago, had transformed the scene. But mystery surrounds the sudden presence of the eel which was a good metre long, indicating that it must have been in these waters for a considerable time.
