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

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

MISCHIEF of mice (how true)

DECENT of lapwings

DISCLAIMER:

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