The colony of Andrena vaga at Dungeness RSPB has been there since at least 2010 (see recent article in BWARS newsletter by Grant Hazlehurst). I had a look at it today and there were 40+ males flying around and a small number of freshly emerged females. Interestingly, the attached photo (apologies for the poor focus!) shows a male Andrena flavipes(?) trying to mate with a female Andrena vaga. This happened a couple of times!
