Burgess Park Lake

The lake in Burgess Park, SE5, might be artificial but it is teeming with wildlife. Cormorants, swans and many other birds are to be seen there. Yesterday I saw lots of huge fish splashing around near the edge, which is something I haven't noticed before.

It put me in mind of The Singing Ringing Tree:

The Singing Ringing Tree traumatised me as a child for years even though I loved it. It was originally a film which was cut up into episodes for TV but which is now available as a film on DVD. A word of warning: don't watch it if you wish to preserve the memory!

I watched the DVD recently and yes it was a bit ropey, but still excellent. The ultravivid colour was great - especially as when I was a kid we had black and white TV.

The big fish looks like a carp. Maybe in times to come, the London Shinto community may come to worship them.

Haven't seen any evidence of Shinto in the park, I've done Tai Chi a few times though.
