Washday Wasp

This little digger wasp took  fancy to our washing on the washing line yesterday. There are quite a few very similar looking species but I'd hazard a guess that this might be a female Crabro cribrarius. There's a picture of a male, with spade-shaped front legs , here

The smooth, almost hemispherical eyes are particularly striking.
