Lovely river to explore!  The Barbus there don't know how lucky they are - I'm thinking of the ones we saw swimming in Collserola yesterday, in shallow muddy streams that might dry up at any moment (though probably not this year).

The area Matt's photographed is towards the tail-end of the Pyrenees as they drop to the Mediterranean.
