There is no way to connect a Thunderbolt external hard drive to the Apple Time Capsule.
-connecting a Thunderbolt to Enet adapter to a Thunderbolt external hard drive doesn't do anything useful. (no NAS support built-in to Thunderbolt hard drives)
-Apple Time Capsule doesn't support adding extra storage via enet or USB2 (although it could possibly support adding storage via USB2)

Time Capsule supports add on hard drives with USB 2 as of this date. It works well and reasonably fast for most uses.
