OK, I was a bit hasty with my original comment that it would stay unknown!

Thanks for the comments, it seems this is quite a common species
Do you know if it varies in 'hairiness' on the legs and around the thorax, there seem to be a lot more white hairs on the thorax and legs than on the last one you identified?

In general bees can vary a lot in 'hairiness', I think partly just because they vary anyway, but also because the hairs rub off over time, and indeed can bleach and fade to much paler colours. This is one of the reasons why bees are so hard to identify just on their general appearance.
