I don't really know BT... it reminded me of ummm an ichthy... something spelling type wasp.... but...

A great picture though. Maybe if no-one comes in who can assist you might post it in the Insects forum.

I'm back again BT; I asked a friend and he thinks it looks like a Ichneumon xanthorius.

(so I was on the right lines LOL)

He also sent a link to this http://www.nhm.ac.uk/content/dam/nhmwww/take-part/identify-nature/british-ichneumonid-wasps-id-guide.pdf
