The other day it was cycling along the riverbed, today it was walking.
The Council has announced that the clean-up of the rio Chillar as far as the border with Frigiliana is almost complete and in a few days they will begin on the rio Seco.
Cloudy on and off but still very warm and a fair number of people out to watch the road races today. The Council has indeed started clearing the margins of the rio Chillar, a quite savage removal of the vegetation along the banks.
After the heavy rains of the past couple of days, water is once again running in the rio Chillar, first time for months.
The Council is proposing to debate a motion at its next plenary session to request the Provincial Delegation of Environment of the Junta de Andalucía to regulate the number of visitors to the rio Chillar and Los Cahorros, a popular hiking route.
The fourth annual clean-up of the rio Chillar was carried out on Sunday by a large number of volunteers, their ages ranging from 5 years to 70 years.
Civil Protection officers and firemen had to rescue two Spanish women, aged 28 and 29 years, on Monday night after they got lost walking the rio Chillar.
A section of the final stretch of the rio Chillar doesn’t look very appetising at the moment, although it could just be foam. Having said that, there were three young Plovers scuttling up and down in the water but skidding to a halt and doing an about turn when they reached the ‘foam’.
The authorities won’t be accumulating many Frequent Cleaning Points, this has been in the river for just over a month now, although it has moved about thirty metres UPSTREAM. And it has been joined by a couple of beer crates.
Must have been quite an accident down by the river.
