This is a very common bee. You can tell bees from wasps (most of the time) because bees are a lot hairier and the females have structures for carrying pollen on the legs or abdomen.
Wasps are not as noticeably hairy, as they are carnivorous. Some parasitic bees look similar to wasps in lacking hair.
Not all wasps are yellow-and-black. Many are black, or black-and-red. Bees vary even more in appearance.

Many thanks for the identification and also for helpful comment. Fairly new to recording and photographing, I have no problem with common or garden bees and wasps, anything else
just throws me! I hope I will get there in the end.
