Long Jawed Orb Weaver Spider?

By fishing  
Yesterday me hubby and I went to Dungeness to take some photos. I wanted to get a photo of a lizard and I did, not in any place you would think to see one, but more of that on another upload.
When hubby was in the last hide trying to see the marsh harriers, I went to see what I could find with my macro lens I found an entomologist, taking photos and because he was using the same macro set up as me, we got chatting, and had a fantastic time. He showed me some spiders that I would have missed and gave me lot of advice and info it was a lovely two or so hours. Thinking hubby would be wondering where I had got to. I said my good byes, and went to find him in the hide. He asked if I had found anything and I said yes I found an entomologist.
This is one of the spiders. The entomologist did tell me the name of the spider but being so forgetful, I cannot remember what he said. I will be taking a note pad with me from now on.
I think it is a Long Jawed Orb Weaver Spider.
