Ginger & Black

Just a quick one today as I have to pop back to work tonight to lead a guided walk. I spotted this bee on a wall today, I'm pretty sure it's Andrena nitida but I am willing to be proven wrong! I am only scratching the surface with aculeates, I don't have the time to do them in intimate detail but there are few species that are easy to ID in the field and this seems like one of them. Ticks on the reserve today included the micro moth Grapholita jungiella and the leaf beetle Crepidodera aurata leaving me on 3276. James and I saw at least three different types of Nomada too including a smart red and black type one.
