Beautiful birds

HERO FINCHES.jpg

It's commonly known that a 'murder of crows' is the collective term for a group of the big, black birds, but would you know the equivilant for, say, kingfishers or larks? (It's 'a concentration' and 'an exaltation', FYI.)

If you want to improve your collective bird name knowledge or, more likely, just love good British artwork, then we recommend you check out the work of Woop Studios, a new UK-based graphic arts studio specifically dedicated to bringing the "fascinating collective of nouns to life".

As we're quite the fan of both art and nouns, we love Woop's work, and their second collection (some of which is pictured below) is a delight. Aptly titled A Collection of British Birds, it is inspired by the changing of the seasons and Britain's love of birds, and was originally spawned from the popularity of the A Watch of Nightingales print - their bestselling to date.

From £69, woopstudios.com
