opmerkingen photographed, videoed (van den Berg 2019; Dutch Birding 41: 269, plate 361, 283, plate 381, 2019). Grey-headed Lapwing seems to be a species on the move. It is expanding its Asian wintering range both towards the west (Wiersma & Kirwan 2020b) and south (Bakewell 2014), and there are several recent records of vagrants in Australia (Wiersma & Kirwan 2020b). Still, even after sightings in Oman (2012), Turkey (2018), and Norway and Sweden (May 2019), this record came as something of a shock. A search by the committee revealed that the species seems to be virtually non-existent in captivity. Its moult perfectly mirrored a wild bird, both in sequence and timing. The lack of pale fringed juvenile coverts, only moderately instead of strongly worn old primaries and perhaps iris colour indicated it was an adult. The jury is still out whether the individual in Norway and Sweden earlier in 2019 was the same bird as the Dutch one. With the recent range expansion in Asia, the question is whether more European records can be expected in the near future?
