Consistently landing on the same plant, over and over again. Seemed to be taking a set route around the garden from shrub to shrub - male patrolling? Small bee, only approx 10-12mm. Have tried to ID but stuck. No yellow spots on back of thorax, two at the front of thorax, one by each wing and one on each side lower front of thorax. Green eyes. Black/orange antenna. Red/orange legs.Seems to have lower white face. No red on abdomen that I can see.
