Andrena tibialis (Allotment)

Another new bee for me slightly worn Andrena tibialis

A. tibialis is widespread but very localised in England north to Yorkshire. It is univoltine and typically flies from mid March to late May. A range of habitats can be used, including heathland, quarries, sandpits and other brownfield sites, chalk grassland and occasionally gardens. It forages from a variety of flowers and spring-blossoming shrubs….. Steven Falk
