Bee ID please.

Is this Bee Colletes succinctus? I sighted several areas last weekend where these bees were ground-nesting in sandy areas at Welwick Saltmarsh, on the North bank of the River Humber. They were fascinating to watch.

Not a great image sadly, I did not get too close as I did not wish to disturb them.

Help with Id will be much appreciated.t

They do look like Colletes, but no way i could venture a species ID without high resolution photos or specimen.
