This tick was taken off the dogs and was still alive when the photo was taken (here very much enlarged).

We do treat the dogs (they’re due for treatment tomorrow) which is probably why it hadn’t attached by the time I found it.

I believe there used to be sheep in the field where they pick them up, and ticks can survive a long time without a host.

The second photo (of a different tick) is less clear but next to an appropriate word on the sheet of paper. They run quite fast so it’s difficult to ‘organise’ them!
