Bees?




Dear all, not strictly on subject here but saw these interesting insects on a tree yesterday at Jerusalem Farm (Calderdale). Thought they were flies of some kind but looking them up they seem more like a bee, Mabybe Andrena genus? Any ideas? They were about 14mm long

Winston, your Bees could well be Andrena haemorrhoa (Early Ming Bee).

My aplogies, for the typo. That should have read Mining & not Ming
