Yes, leaf cutting bee - we get them around here - lucky you!  They're wonderful.

We found lots of their little nests in rotten beams in my studio roof, each one lined with sections of my Graham Thomas rose that grew over the studio walls   Magical

Probably springtails - they live in compost and help break it down, they do no harm, they're just part of life's rich pattern
