This has a silvery face thus not E cavifrons. The other suggestions were E literatus or E cephalotes.

Common Furrow Bee (Lasioglossum calceatum) Male & Female ?

This a dark form male, pale mark on the clypeus. The tarsi and end of each tibia are pale/yellow.

Well again. Not quite

Hard to say but I think these are all male Lasioglossum leucozonium, as the tips of the tarsi (segments 2 – 5) are quite dark.
The two together are both males because their basi-tarsi are white.

Not quite

The conehead is a female Long-winged Conehead nymph - nymph
because the stripe is black not brown (hence why the wings aren't fully developed)

Thanks to @NorfolkNats for the id correction.

The images below I thought were

Tormentil Mining Bee (Andrena tarsata)

Things are never quite that simple.

Apparently there are a number of A dorsata in amongst these pictures.

Nick Owens comment

Some of the tormentil bees are Andrena dorsata – but very worn. They have more distinctive white side-bands and rufous hairs on the thorax – also a bit bigger I think.
The tibia is dark not orange as in A. tarsata though you can’t see this under the pollen.

So I'm going to put a D to ones I think are A dorsata looking for the distinctive white side bands and rufous hairs on the thorax.

Thus If I managed to find one Tormentil Mining Bee I was lucky.

Next Year!!
