Notes

  • S3102 - 64: Breeding population in relevant countries 13,601-35,584 pairs (40,803-106,752 individuals).
  • S8454 - 556-918 pairs in BG, HU, RO, SI and SK (European Topic Centre on Biological Diversity, in prep., BirdLife International et al., in prep.). Further 17,341-34,490 pairs in RU, BY, HR, MK, RS&ME, TR and UA (BirdLife International, 2004).
  • T6452 - Between 1990 and 2000, it decreased in UA, RO, BG, TR, and was stable or fluctuating elsewhere (BirdLife International, 2004). It is still decreasing in BG and RO and fluctuating in HU, SI and SK (European Topic Centre on Biological Diversity, in prep., BirdLife International et al., in prep.).
  • S8826 - 15,528-29,478 pairs in AM, BY, GE, RS, RU, TR and UA (BirdLife International 2015).
  • T6782 - The large RU population is slightly increasing, the small populations in BG, RO, RS and TR are decreasing, stable or fluctuating in other countries. In the long-term it appears to be stable in most countries except the small populations in HU, RO and TR.
