Baggeridge Country Park 25 March 2012

I went for a quick walk at Baggeridge Country Park one Sunday as something to do. I headed over to the Toposcope and found some mining bees popping in and out of their holes. These were Andrena clarkella and are some of the earliest mining bees to emerge in the spring.

This species of Andrena is best separated from others in its genera by the rusty red rear legs.
