Only a Godwit?

I took this photo in 1991 on the North Sea island of Sylt, Germany.

I think it is only a Bar-tailed Godwit, but the jizz and some other features made the bird looking a little bit strange. So I was also thinking of an Asian Dowitcher.

If you can help to confirm my ID or say anything about that bird I would appreciate it.
