Thanks again Foxy. Will definitely try that when we have dates fixed.
I have got a Birds of Cuba book - I bought it a couple of years ago in hope and expectation - also because it was on offer at the BirdFair.
All out holidays are really arranged as birding trips with a bit of relaxing included if time permits. My wife isn't really a birder but travels with me to see some of the country then reads while I trek off looking for the birds. Neither of us are really beach/lazing round a pool people which is why I was a bit wary of the Cayos to start with but your information sounds like it will be a great place to see,
Hope Romania goes well and look forward to hearing from you when you get back,.
