opmerkingen photographed (van den Berg 2019; Dutch Birding 41: 268, plate 358, 282, plate 379-380, 2019). During a year full of unexpected records, this was perhaps the most unexpected one. At the time of the sighting, many regarded it an escaped cage bird but its credentials changed when plumage analysis by a keen birder showed that the same individual had been photographed on Pag, Croatia, on 14 May. That made it very plausible that Red-wattled Lapwings (poorly) photographed in Bayern, Germany, on 31 May and at Kieldrecht, Belgium, on 11 June also involved the same individual. Beforehand, the vagrancy potential of this species might have been seen as questionable as it is not known for long migratory flights but this unringed and undamaged bird covered a large distance in good health. All encounters of this bird were brief: it did not seem to stop moving along its route. The distance to Pag (c 1150 km from Texel or Ameland in a straight line) is c a third of the total distance to the nearest breeding grounds, and the direction points directly back towards its supposed home soil. Furthermore, this species seems to be very scarce to rare in captivity, and the committee could not find a single sighting of a proven escape. It therefore got the benefit of the doubt, though the committee is aware that opinions on this bird differ. For instance, it was accepted in category A in Croatia, whereas it was placed in category D in Belgium (it has not been assessed in Germany yet).
