So SWMBO saw 9 yes 9 magpies in our back yard today they were altogether in a :- TITTERING, TIDING, GULP, MURDER or CHARM* as more than 1 is known.

BTW according to the rhyme 9 magpies heralds a kiss.

There are some real off the wall Collective Nouns. Anyone get any good ones real or made up? Such as a "Wallet" of Bankers.
 
I thought it was a wunch of bankers!!

PS - IIRC it's a murder of magpies.
 
Funnily enough MrsA2 and I were having this conversation this morning in regard to glasses as I have to collect several pairs for re-glazing to a new prescription. Best we could come of with was an ogle of glasses.

BTW Have you ever seen a Magpie very close up? Their colouring is wonderful.
