Notes

  • S8426 - Unknown numbers breed in Central Asia and West Siberia. 52,769 counted in the Nile Delta in Dec-Jan 1989/1990 (Olsen 2010).
  • T6425 - Breeding population in European RU considered stable (European Topic Centre on Biological Diversity, in prep., BirdLife International et al., in prep.), but no information from W Siberia and Central Asia.
  • T7055 - Insufficient data for the short-term trend after 2000.
