- S8233 - The total of national breeding population estimates from the EU Birds Directive Art. 12 reporting process is 4,664-5,485 pairs. Based on data from 2012, Overdijk et al. 2013 gives the figure of 4,729-6,301 pairs in 102 colonies. The latter was adopted here considering that it is more recent and provided by a specialist network. Van Roomen et al. (2014) accounted for 18,310 individuals based on winter counts in Europe and West Africa after deducting numbers for P.l. balsaci. Considering that immature birds remain in Africa until they reach breeding age and the on-going population growth, it is likely that the population size is closer to the upper limit than to the lower one.
- T6235 - Based on the national trend data for breeding populations provided under the EU Birds Directive Art. 12 process, the population has increased by 49-79% over the last decade and by 167-173% over the last 3 decades. Van Roomen et al. (2014) have also shown large increase both in the long- and the short-term based on mid-winter counts.
- T7162 - Based on the national trend data for breeding populations the population has increased by 49-79% over the last decade and by 167-173% over the last 3 decades (BirdLife International 2015). van Roomen et al. (2015) have also shown large increase both in the long- and the short-term based on mid-winter counts.
