Andrena sp.

I favour something like Andrena carantonica (=scotica).

A. carantonica does not have pale bands on the gaster, so I don't see that as a possibility.

Andrena sp.

I concede A. carantonica doesn't have pale hair bands, but hair bands do show up at some angles depending on lighting. I'm not sure the bands on these are dense enough to be A. flavipes which are more like those on Colletes sp. (unless they're very worn). I thought A. dorsata might be a possibility but this specimen seems very hairy on the first tergites.
