Tick on Collared Dove

Observation - Tick on Collared Dove - UK and Ireland. Description: A dark coloured tick. In the last month or so I've seen two young greenfinches and a sparrow similarly afflicted. Is it just a good year for ticks, or am I in a tick hot spot? You can see the other birds on earlier posts.
