hairy footed bee on flowering currant

I noticed this evening that the hairy footed bee is visiting the flowering currant. In previous years the hairy footed bees have stopped visiting my garden by the time the currant is in flower.
This is probably due to the unseasonal period of sunny weather we have been having
I am pleased, as pulmonaria plant in the back garden has been a bit worn out by the early emergence of buff tailed bumble bees that have visited the pulmonaria. This is usually only visited by the hairy footed bee and the occasional early bumble bee.
