I would think more along the lines of Formica pratensis, based on the dull pilosity (hairiness) of the gaster.
If you enjoy my expertise and identifications, please do not put wild populations at risk of disease by releasing pet colonies. We are responsible to give our pets the best care we can manage for the rest of their lives.

Uppsala, so a bit north but as it is coastal it should be quite similar. Just went out the day after a bit of rain in a pine forest.
