BE AWARE OF TICKS NOW.

When out walking or with your dog be aware of the danger from ticks just now. The warning has been broadcast on the TV as this is the busy time for them.

Also look out for any hedgehogs that you find and inspect them for ticks. The photo below does not need a lot of searching to realize that it has a heavy tick burden and is in need of assistance immediately if it is to have any hope of survival.
