A very bad Photo pascuorum -
No interactions present.
Hi Colin, sorry but I do not think this is a Hairy-footed Flower Bee. The face should be yellowy white and quite hairless in places. The legs are not long or hairy enough in my opinion and the thorax is just too shaggy, your opinions please. Regards Chris

I think it could be this, but they are little monkeys to photograph, either they are too fast or I'm too slow.
Yes it looks like pascorum - part of a large job lot from 6 spring sites that I cant get thru quick enough for recording looking at it again is pascorum , plumipes to follow feeding together at same spot . Interestingly a well thought thru spring corner on a farm lane - Lungwort Primrose Red Deadnttle Honesty Daffodil and Periwinkle all providing spring fodder - 5 Bee species and 8 hovers on a quick pass Peter is right , though they sure are quick little monkies who dont hang around
