Notes

  • S8539 - Peak counts from East Africa: 24,941 individuals from SD in 2010 and 10,124 in 2012 (Wetlands International, 2014). However, there are still big gaps regarding Sudd and southern N Sudan and likely elsewhere. IAsh & Atkins (2009) describe as 'very common' in Ethiopia.
  • T6673 - Available data is insufficient to asses recent trends for this population.
  • T6940 - Representativity of the short-term trend is questionable. Loong-term trend (1998-2014): fluctuating, possibly with a declining tendency
