Description:

I have edited this observation since posting it.
We have bees in the roof so I have been watching them. There are quite a lot like this one. My observation "Bumblebee no. 1" turns out to be a hoverfly.
I have added two more photos (hopefully of the same sort of insect!)

It might be a Common Carder Bee but I just can't be sure from the detail available.
