There was an optional chaff guard available which should help, but
since it amounts to a fine mesh behind the plastic grille it should be
easy enough to make something.

Most offroad sites have a watery section. take a bucket and a hand
brush with you. Before you leave, park up by/in the water and then
chuck buckets of water at your dirty radiator. Use the brush carefully
if it helps.
