A female Andrena vaga was found on Monday 6 April by Ian Beavis as it was looking for a nest site in Dunorlan Park Tunbridge Wells. This is a very exciting discovery of this large spring Andrena. Recent records from Dungeness and from the Solent coast in the last year or so are the first from Britain for many years. It is a Sallow feeder. Everyone should keep their eyes peeled for this spectacular bee!
Records can be submiited online here
