CLUSTER of spiders (sometimes called a CLUTTER)

GENERATION of vipers (not windscreen of vipers, as a colleague recently told me)

FEVER of stringrays (those of us of a certain age will now sing the theme tune

MISCHIEF of mice (how true)

DECENT of lapwings

No animals or 50-year-old ex-grammar school boys were injured in the writing of this blog.
