Notes

  • S4571 - 676 estimates 6,500-9,308 breeding pairs (19,500-27,924 individuals). Population includes 50-100 birds resident in Eastern Aegean region (339).
  • S8511 - The total for CZ (70%), PL (90%), DE (50%), AT, BG, EE, HU, LT, LV, RO, SE, SI, SK is 4,650-6,177 pairs (European Topic Centre on Biological Diversity, in prep.). In addition, 3,287-5,338 pairs can breed in AL, AM, AZ, BY, BA, HR, GR, MK, MD, RS, ME, TR, UA and RU (BirdLife International, 2004). This suggests that the total Central and Eastern European population is 7,937-11,515 pairs, i.e. 23,900-34,600 individuals (with some provision for BA and GE).
  • T6508 - Based on data from CZ, PL, DE, AT, BG, EE, HU, LT, LV, RO, SE, SI, SK, the population is stable or increasing in most countries except SK and LV. The overall trend is stable both during 2000-2012 and 1980-2012 (European Topic Centre on Biological Diversity, in prep.).
