Whilst digging in the soil at the weekend, I found many things (see this previous post for a few more of them) including a couple of earwigs. The specimen in the picture appears to be the literally Common Earwig - a male in this case, as evidenced by the very curved cerci (the pincers at the rear end) with fattened bases. Females have straighter cerci.
