Drinker Moth Caterpillar?

Bradlaugh Fields 'scrub field', Northampton, June 1st

Saw several of these larvae on the move around Bradlaugh Fields in the last few days, the one in this photograph being particularly active. Very hairy, tufted and about 4 or 5cm long, could this be the Drinker?

What do you think? More info and photos here, or here, and here.
