Here goes - you'll have to tell me if you think any of these are wrong.

CONFUSION of Guinea fowl

CLUSTER of spiders (sometimes called a CLUTTER)

PLUMP of wildfowl

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

de de er de de, de de er de de (anything can happen in the next half an hour Troy.)

EXULTATION of skylarks

COTERIE of prarie dogs (not many coteries on my estate)

MISCHIEF of mice (how true)

DECENT of lapwings

ARRAY of hedgehogs

CLOUD of grasshoppers

TOWER of giraffes

CONGREGATION of alligators (see you later alligator, wait a while crocodile. Sorry.)

MOB of emus (make up your own jokes).

DISCLAIMER:

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