Thanks Matt for putting me

Thanks Matt for putting me right!
It was quite close to flowering willows in a damp habitat, and I can see the yellow hairs even better on another photo.

Too early?

and I guess mid-March is too early for A. haemorrhoea despite its English name?

Timings

The flight period for a lot of these "early" species depends on the weather, we have had a nice dry warm spell which has brought a lot of species out.

The first A.haemorrhoa males have started to appear in various forum photos over the last few days so expect females soon, but A.clarkella has been on the wing for 2-3 weeks now.
