A charm against swine flu

I've always enjoyed the number of goldfinches that visit my garden each day - sometimes as many as 15 in one go. But I've now discovered that the collective noun for goldfinches is a 'charm' which came about because it was believed that they could ward off the Black Death. Perhaps I don't need vaccination against swine flu after all!
