American Golden Plover on Terschelling

The birding highlight of a non-birding weekend on Terschelling. The bird was feeding solitary and was regularly chased away by the local Lapwings. Primary and toe projection, call and flank pattern all fit American but I did not have the time to study this tricky plumage in detail. The finders must have!:-)
