Many of these small insects were flying round some young nettles which had holes eaten into them (though probably not be these chaps).
The nettles were near some old hedge and lawn clippings and by some rabbit holes.

    Likely ID
    a mining bee (Andrena sp.)
    Confidence: It's likely to be this, but I can't be certain.
