More Herd than Scene

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

Who knew??

  1. 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.
