10m WSPR - interesting short skip

This morning and lunchtime I've been running 5W WSPR on 28MHz. There was some Es propagation but the most interesting reports were from Holland with two reports at around 450kms. Now this is usually too short for Es propagation, so I wonder if this was tropo?

Hi Roger, yes I can confirm Holland on 10m as I worked a station in Amsterdam from the mobile around 1230, I was a weak but readable 5/2.

Around the same time I heard a few German stations as well.

73 Paul.

Almost certainly Sporadic-E. 500kms on 10m is well within the min skip distance. Way too far for any kind of tropo on 10m.
