Solitary bee

Hi everyone

 

This bee has been dismantling my house wall for two days and I would like to know what it is.DSC_8633.jpg

    This looks like a female Anthophora plumipes, the "Hairy footed bee", commonly seen at this time of year and often associated with soft masonry, particularly chimneys. Look for the male in the garden nearby, he doesn't look at all like the female.
