Andrena trimmerana

On an overcast morning today I was able to photograph this male of Andrena trimmerana as it perched and preened on an Alexanders leaf. The hind leg tarsi and apical tibia are reddish as is the mid tarsus. The clypeus is black-haired and the genal spine is clearly visible.

Chiffchaffs have arrived in some numbers and single Firecrests were seen in two places.
