Collecting dish with four ticks and a 50 pence coin and ruler to show size

This is a lightweight plastic Petri dish with a tight-fitting lid that appears to be tick-escape proof. The re-sealable plastic bag is to ensure that the dish and lid stay together and as a secondary containment in the unlikely event of the dish and lid coming apart. It also houses the data sheet - see sample under Record sheet.
