Notes

  • S2144 - 65 give estimate of 19,200 breeding pairs (57,600 individuals).
  • S8407 - 21,507-21,907 pairs in European breeding countries except HR (European Topic Centre on Biological Diversity, in prep., BirdLife International et al., in prep.). 60-70 pairs in HR (BirdLife International, 2004). North Africa: c. 150-250 pairs (Dodman, 2014). This yields a total estimate of 21,722-22,227 pairs, i.e. 65,000-67,000 individuals.
  • T6406 - European Topic Centre on Biological Diversity (in prep.) and BirdLife International et al. (in prep.) suggest an overall stable short-term trend (2000-2012: 0.9997-1.0025) and an increasing one for the long-term (1980-2012: 1.0009-1.0013).
  • S8959 - 21,567-21,977 pairs in European breeding countries. North Africa: c. 150-250 pairs (Dodman, 2014). This yields a total estimate of 21,722-22,227 pairs.
  • T7032 - Long-term trend: strong increase.
