Notes

  • S3156 - 64: Breeding population in relevant countries 4,721-8,660 pairs (14,163-25,980 individuals).
  • S8460 - 1,580-3,470 pairs in DE, EE, FI, LT, LV, SE (European Topic Centre on Biological Diversity, in prep., BirdLife International et al., in prep.). Further 1,500-3,000 pairs in RU (BirdLife International, 2004).
  • T6458 - Decreasing in the large population of FI, increasing in LT and SE, stable in DE, EE, unknown in LV (European Topic Centre on Biological Diversity, in prep., BirdLife International et al., in prep.) and was unknown in RU (BirdLife International, 2004).
  • S8830 - 4,910-7,545 pairs in EE, FI, LT, LV, RU, SE and UA (BirdLife International 2015).
  • T6789 - The breeding population is decreasing in the large population of FI, increasing in LT and SE, stable in DE, EE, unknown in LV and RU and the overall short-term trend is negative (BirdLife International 2015). The IWC trend analysis also confirms the short-term decline (Wetlands International 2017). However, the long-term trend of the breeding population is considered to be strongly decreasing (BirdLife International 2015) while the IWC data suggest a stable long-term trend (Wetlands International 2017).
