We love collective nouns as so many of them are both descriptive and funny. Here we have collected (excuse the pun) some of our favourites and even added a few of our own. The list is split into animals, plants & others and some of our creations at the end.  Let us know if you have any suggestions (either real or created) we’d love to add more.

A word of appreciation is due to ‘Uncle John’ who started this list when we were all much younger and better looking.
