Notes

  • S8072 - Trolliet, B. In litt. 2011: This species was seen only once (2 birds) in the Lake Chad Basin. It is possible to miss small numbers one time or another but it is unlikely that several thousand birds would have remained systematically unnoticed. Suggested estimate < 1000.
  • S5404 - 920. This species was seen only once (2 birds) in the Lake Chad Basin. It is possible to miss small numbers one time or another but it is unlikely that several thousand birds would have remained systematically unnoticed. Suggested estimate < 1000.
  • S8621 - Maximum of 1,000 applied for WPE5; minimum here increased from 1 to 100 (e.g. 45 in northern Nigeria in 2012).
  • T6690 - Past declining trend is quite well established, but current trend is indeed unknown. Nevertheless, it is classified being in significant long-term decline on the assumption that past trend has not changed.
