Wooooohoooo! The River Is Running!!!!!! (Video)

Facebooktwittermail

If you live in the Algarve, you will know that the region was starting to get desperate for rain, also you will know just how much rain we’ve had in the last 2 days, particularly here in the northern hills where it has been heavy and persistent. I had a bet with myself yesterday that the river would get a kick-start and be running this morning. However, it was still dry and we even walked the dogs along our usual route along the river bed.

Imagine my surprise this afternoon when I stood outside the Quinta and could hear gushing water. I headed down to the river (its just over 400 metres away) and it is now in full flow, even over the top of the bridge/ford (Video below).


This is not only great for the human population of the Algarve (this is the River Odelouca which feeds the Barragem de Odelouca, one of the main tap water sources in the Algarve) but also the wildlife such as the Otter and Kingfisher amongst many others. There’ll be a lot of wildlife parties tonight!

  1. Last Thursday the barragem de Odelouca, and the rest only had accumulated with the rain water for 29 days and a half. I it will continue to flow more water. But more rain is needed. Regards
