Take care


Most are probably already aware, but it will do no harm to reiterate, that ticks are currently prevalent in parts of Devon.  Given that many of these little creatures carry nasty diseases, walkers should take sensible precautions to avoid getting bitten.

Keep legs and arms covered                                       Try not to brush against vegetation
Consider using repellent
Ticks are easier to see on light clothing

The Lyme Disease Action charity's website gives a huge amount of information,  which may be viewed here:

You have been warned!
