15mm long insect, looks like wasp, but I don't think it is!
No interactions present.
most likely one of the digger wasps (Crabroninae)

thanks! The children I was with when we spotted this wanted to know if it could sting them? I'm curious about how common/uncommon it is - though I suppose we need to ID it more specifically to establish that?
