Initially the sheer number of insects is a bit disorientating, like a falcon with a flock of starlings it can be hard to focus on any individuals and make sense of what's present. Once I'd got my eye in I could see that the vast majority of insects were made up of a few species, honeybees, Myathropa florea, Eristalis pertinax and tenax with a decent smattering of Ivy bees, Colletes hederae, showing that they're well established after first turning up a couple of years ago.
