    Default Collective Nouns

    I love quizzes and one of my favourite subjects is collective nouns such as:-

    Kindle of kittens
    Crash of rhinos
    Leap of leopards etc

    Anyone got any unusual ones?

    Also any suggestions for a group of geocachers?
    The light at the end of the tunnel is an oncoming train

    A Charm of Finches
    A Chattering of Choughs
    A Parliament of Owls
    A Siege of Herons

    A collective noun for cachers has been discussed on occasion in the past. My favourite is a co-ordinate of cachers.

    I quite like A gang of buffalo

    Mental image of a group of buffalo, all wearing dark glasses, and hoodies, hanging around on a street corner....
