Oh, OK. I thought this was going to be Wainwrights or Munros...
Still impressive though<img />

After a recent coastal walk on Mull I spent the entire evening removing 62 juicy ticks - has anyone ever done better than this?!
were they all attached?
I've had literally hundreds brushed off of me when a younger man (only a few attached) - after being foolish enough to lie down on a hot day - wearing shorts, not wearing a shirt. It was whilst walking in the Burren - wild goat area.<img /><img />
The most I've removed in one go, is 23, all attached , but had removed /brushed off ones during walk.
Not sure if goats are 'worse' than sheep/deer, might depend on which is the more numerous in the local area.
Ouch! That's one hell of a plague!
I can't quite recall what the ratio of infected tics is, though it is quite low. But, as someone who has Bells Palsy, most likely caused through an infected tic bite, I would keep aware of any illnesses that seem out of the ordinary, get to see your GP and explain what has happened.
Have a good look through the following websites.
Perhaps it depends whether you're ticklish?
