Notes

  • T5729 - Wetlands International 2012. Trend 1983-2007: +1.26 ? Uncertain.
  • T2704 - 898. Trend 1983-2007: +1.26 – Uncertain.
  • T6260 - Trend 1988-2012: -17.7% decline. Longer term trend (1988-2012) is uncertain due to large number of missing counts. Trend is mainly driven by the declines in Iran.
  • S8919 - Cuthbert & Aarvak (2016) estimated c. 250,000 (177,700-320,000) individuals in Kazakhstan in the autumn of 2016. However, numbers from elsewhere in the region are not known.
