Queen, beach, Denmark

Today (21st April) I spotted this queen on a beach in Northern Denmark (Tisvilde). She was pretty aggressive, seemed to search for a place to nest. Possibly was pissed, as she was just few cm from the seawater? Any idea what species is that? Lenghth around 10-13 mm not sure.
Hope the image will work:

You can try for an ID here.

Did you keep it?

Parasitic Formica.
An ants' strength can be rivaled by few animals compared to relative body size.
