Notes

  • T3450 - 700: Trend apparently increasing modestly in E Mediterranean, virtually stable in W Mediterranean, but poor data quality hampers interpretation.
  • T6033 - Wetlands International 2012. Trend 1983-2007: +2.5% p.a. ? Increase. However, trend in African part of range is poorly represented in the IWC dataset although numbers wintering in Africa are relatively small compared to the rest of the population. Trollie
  • T3453 - 898. Trend 1983-2007: +2.5% p.a. – Increase. However, trend in African part of range is poorly represented in the IWC dataset although numbers wintering in Africa are relatively small compared to the rest of the population. 882: Reported only 29,000 from West Africa in 2006 showing no clear trend.
  • T3452 - 914. Increasing W Mediterranean, Decreasing E Mediterranean
  • S8534 - The current estimate of 450,000 individuals was set by Scott & Rose (1996) assuming 100,000-170,000 individuals in the Eastern Mediterranean, 280,000 in the West Mediterranean and 20,000 for West Africa. The maximum of IWC count totals has now increased to 351,804 individuals in 2006, but these figures do not consistently include the Sahelian wetlands that supported between 15,000 and 30,000 individuals between 2000 and 2007 (Trolliet et al., 2008) and exceeded 45,000 individuals at the Senegal Delta in 2008 (Triplet et al., 2010). 84,454 individuals were counted in North Africa in January 2013. Accounting for missing counts, the total of this population now is possibly between 500,000 and 600,000 individuals.
  • T6530 - The trend based on the IWC counts show a strong increase in the long-term (Nagy et al., 2014) and this agrees with the overall trend derived from national reports to the EU Birds Directive Art. 12 process (1980-2012: 1.0004-1.0064). Likewise, the trend calculated based on the IWC agrees with the overall trend derived from national ones for the short-term (2000-2012: 0.9919-1.0178), both showing fluctuations. In West Africa, long-term dataser for the Senegal Delta shows large fluctuations (Triplet, et al., 2010).
