Break out / in / into

A pleasant weekend but has winter broken into spring or is it just a break in the weather. Looking at the forecast for the end of the week I suspect the latter but nice all the same and the birds broke into song. Two Skylarks and three Song Trush was the best but also Wren, Blackbird, Robin, Dunnock, Blue Tit, Starling, Greenfinch, Chaffinch and on Sunday, Willow Tit.
The warm weather creates bands of mist over the Carr as various layers of different temperature air collide.
Possibly the loudest and most boring songster was the Great Tit which with Robin, Blackbird, Dunnock and Willow Tit are still visiting posts where I have been putting food out during the bad weather. The post above is a favourite perhaps due to the anti-Magpie / Hawk defences!
On Sunday I was seeing an unusual number of deer out in the open until I realised some scumbag was doing a circuit of the wood with his hound, lifting the mutt up on this occasion to give it view of the prey. Shame the range wasn't active, you never get a stray bullet when you need it!

  1. My pessimism rules, I think it is just a break as on the main BBC News this morning The Toon was mentioned as only reaching 3 Celsius today and no doubt its all downhill from there.
