What bugs are these?

IMG_0260 - Caterpillar found on Ivy in back garden


IMG_0403 - Grub of some kind - quite large - what will this bug turn into?


IMG_0502 - some sort of beetle larvae? 


IMG_0669 - what type of fly is this?  Or is it a parasitic wasp?  Does a parastitic wasp have any distinguishable features?


IMG_0861 - fantastic spider with fantastic antenae - does this little spider have an English name?


All these were found on the heathkands unless otherwise mentioned.


Many thanks once again - as without an ID then this would take hours searching and the description for the young people would just result in "fly" or "caterpillar".

    0861 - I think this is Neottiura bimaculatum though I don't know if it's possible to be 100% sure from a photo

    0403 - This looks like a leatherjacket, the larva of a crane fly.

    669 - Hymenoptera. I'm not sure if it's a sawfly or an ichneumon
