Notes

  • S4798 - 64: Does not breed in Europe. European wintering population >500 individuals, mainly in Norway. 206 suggests a Russian breeding population of 5,000.
  • S7055 - The European wintering population is estimated at 1,000 individuals (BirdLife International 2015). The whole Russian breeding population is estimated at 8,000 individuals (US Fish and Wildlife Service 2009). It is unknown what proportion of these birds actually winter on European waters.
