Small hairy red bee identification

Hello. I've seen this bee around in our garden and wonder what it is. It is smaller than a honey bee, has reddish hair but doesn't seem to be hairy enough to be something like a tawny mining bee, although I've never seen one to be knowledge to know what I'm talking about. There are quite few of them and they seem above all interested in the rosemary bush. I live in Sandy, Bedfordshire, if that helps. Apologies for the blurry photo: they seem more camera shy than the honey bees around them.
