Notes

  • S8455 - No more than 1,023 (2004) counted during IWC counts (Solokha, 2006).
  • T6453 - O'Donnel and Fjeldsa (1997) suggests that it increased in the Caspian. Previous assessment was STA based on information from BirdLife International (2002). However, count totals are declining, but coverage is sparse and irregular to judge trends.
  • T7166 - O'Donnel and Fjeldsa (1997) suggest that it has increased in the Caspian. Previous assessment was STA based on information from BirdLife International (2002). However, count totals are declining, but coverage is sparse and irregular to judge trends.
