Collective noun

A mob of mallards sounds good. It got me wondering what the collective noun actually was for mallards. I found a list (on a pub quiz site!)that suggests the collective noun is sord - a sord of mallards. Not quite the same sound.

In honour of that comic actor

In honour of that comic actor 'of yore', I vote for an 'Arthur' of Mullards, sorry Mallards.
