Can anyone identify this beetle?

I know this picture isn't great so i'm not looking for an exact species identification but any information would be great, I found this in a garden in Yorkshire if that helps.

Thanks.Photo0422.jpg

    It is a weevil (Curculionidae) and I would without hesitation put it in Otiorhynchus (I often do things without hesitation...). When it comes to species I would however like to make a reservation due to the quality of the image, but I still dare a guess (I'm quite brave when it comes to guessing as well) on Otiorhynchus sulcatus. O. sulcatus is also known (and feared) by gardeners as the Black Vine Weevil (from hell...).
