Trapping at Furnace Quarry

I left an actinic trap at Furnace Quarry (just north of Llanelli) last night 8/8 and caught a fair range of moths, but nothing really exciting. Migrants were represented by a few silver y`s, one dark sword-grass and one rush veneer. Residents of vague interest included southern wainscot (one), yellow-tails (5), one black arches and a single male four-spotted footman.
A pristine female oak eggar was caught, as was the pyralid Anania coronata.
