Mining bees

Observation - Mining bees - UK and Ireland. Description: We had a group of bee nests on our site in the first part of last year. I have read that the solitary bee most likely to nest communally in this way is Andrena scotica (A. carantonica). I wonder if these pictures can confirm that identification.
