Burrowing Wasp2?

This creature was between 10 and 15mm. It was burrowing in a patch of bare earth in the wildflower/weed section of my lawn. It would exit the hole backwards and shuffle right back to the top of the picture and then work its way forward again and back down the hole. It would stay in the hole for a few minutes before re-emerging and doing the same. The tip of the abdomen is quite pointed.
