ID of spider

Hi. I photographed this spider on a web in gorse. Is it Agelena labrynthica?  The web and funnel seem right, but the markings on the spider aren't as described. Thanks David.

    I believe that is a female Pisaura mirabilis, known as the Nursery Web Spider.  She is standing guard over the web with her eggs in, and will continue to guard the spiderlings when they hatch.
