Thanks Simbo65. I will try and catch it. We go to bed before they come out as we are up early so my best bet is to try and catch it early morning which may not be a bad thing as it won’t be locked up for as long! I will also phone our local hospital to have a chat to see if they will de-tick while I wait (as mentioned elsewhere on the forum). Thanks for the heads up on protection, I have had a tick a couple of years ago in Scotland,thankfully I found it the day after it got to me! On a weird note, it was useful to actually see one in the flesh (no pun intented!) rather than just on a leaflet! Tick removers always in the first aid kit! Will keep you posted on the hog.
