Not sure on the one in the second post but I'd have thought the Buff-taled in the first post is more likely White-tailed given the very crisp demarkation between the black and white? The Tree Bumble...

2 moths for ID, Hove East Sussex

The first of these is confusing me, as to whether it's a waekly marked Small Waved Umber or a strongly marked Fern, or something else?

The other I think is Cyclamen Tortrix?
