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

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.
