You are very lucky. The holes of these are all over local heathland, but I have yet to see a live one. Remains of the odd predated specimen are all I ever find.

With thanks to both Chris and Ian for your comments and to the four I.D. agreements. Much appreciated.
Chris, I have added the scientific name and will be sure to do likewise for future observations.
I've had a load of great insects over the last month or so and will start to upload them later today.
