Many thanks!

Many thanks for pointing me in the right direction. I have now looked up Colletes hederae and habitat and behaviour etc seem to match very well. There is a huge colony numbering several thousand which has suddenly appeared on a sandy cliff face and the surrounding region has vast amounts of Ivy.
