More Herd than Scene

...although the collective noun is "army".

Who knew??

Simon there are also...
a colony of frogs...
[I don't follow that one... they tend to live spread out]
a knot of frogs...
[must refer to the footballs you can get when mating... also applies to toads]
a chorus of frogs...
and...
a fretting of frogs
[both of which must be the same thing...
but the fretting probably refers to the irritation of someone trying to sleep at night]
but I do like "Army"... especially as I walk past the walnut and they all plop into the water!
Army isn't in my little book of collective nouns...
nb: it was my Mum's originally.
