I take it all back ... a few days of sunshine and the garden is positively buzzing and I've never noticed such a variety of bees here before.
Last night I followed a twitter thread debating the pros and cons of beekeeping versus supporting the increase in our native pollinators.
With more than 97000 weevils in the world it's going to be quite tricky to properly identify this one even with a decent photograph (which this is not!).
