This seems to be the only area in Bucks where these two moths are resident. Numbers weren't as good as I'd expected (eight White-line and only the one Archer's) but at least this confirms their continued presence. Neither species has been recorded anywhere in the county since I previously trapped regularly at Rammamere back in 2011.
Altogether more than 100 species came to light which was quite good for the time of year. Others worthy of a mention included Ypsolopha nemorella, Agriphila inquinatella, Birch Mocha, Chevron, Peacock (a double-digit count), Pine Hawk-moth, True Lover's Knot, Antler Moth, Six-striped Rustic (the first I've seen this year), White-point, Beautiful Yellow Underwing, Small Rufous and a migrant Scarce Bordered Straw.
