Cuba, Day 14, 17 March 2017 - transit day Cayo Guillermo to Havana

Today was a big day of travelling. Beginning with an 8 hour drive back to Havana.

The causeway back to the mainland had one last surprise - a floating American White Pelican which is a rare but increasing visitor to the area. Double-crested Cormorants and an adult Great black-backed Gull plus Brown Pelicans, Laughing Gulls and Royal Terns followed. After that the journey yielded Cuban Black Hawk, Red-tailed Hawk, an Osprey carrying a fish near Moron and 3 American Kestrels as I struggled to keep my eyes open! A Small Indian Mongoose that ran across the road near Ciego de Avila was the only mammal of the whole trip!

The rest is boring travelling rubbish that I won't bother you with!

The trip had given me 57 new birds which was a more than pleasing haul.
