I have gone through Brock for this first one and found some similar bees: Andrena fuscipes, Heather Mining Bee; Andrena scotica, Chocolate Mining Bee; and Bombus humilis, Brown-banded Carder Bumble Bee although might be the wrong area for this.

Interesting exercise, and suggests to me that comparing photos with photos in a Brock or similar just doesn't work, leastways not to species level. These are B. pascourum and terrestris.
