Notes

  • S4195 - 64: European breeding population 16,000 - 22,000 pairs (48,000 - 66,000 individuals).
  • S8502 - The total for BG, ES, FR, HU, IT and RO is 6,183-7,253 pairs (European Topic Centre on Biological Diversity, in prep.). In addition, 8,714-11.679 pairs breed inHR, MK, MD, RU, RS and UA according to BirdLife International (2004). This results in a total population estimate of 44,700-56,800 individuals estimate.
  • T6497 - Significant long-term decline based on continued decline (Tucker & Heath, 1994, BirdLife International, 2004). Reliable new trend data is only available from FR and BG. From other countries there is either no short-term trend data or the population is fluctuating (European Topic Centre on Biological Diversity, in prep.).
  • S8862 - 24,217 - 29,425 pairs.
  • T6856 - The short-term trend is unknown or fluctuating in 8 of 14 breeding range states. Long-term trend is fluctuating in 7.
