Was it a scorpion?
This afternoon I was listening to GQT . There was an item on keeping parts of the garden as a habitat for insects and other creatures. A few minutes later while sweeping up leaves from my terrace to put on a different part of the garden for that purpose I came across a black insect about three quarters on an inch long which looked like a small scorpion. It had the erect curled tail and there were tiny white spots on the tip of the tail. I put it amongst the leaves. Unfortunately I didn't manage to photograph it. What was it? I live in Marlborough Wilts, just downthe road from Avebury whrer the programme was taking place. It was shiny black.
