Notes

  • T6536 - Previous trend estimate was justified by the destruction of the Iraq Marshes. With restoration under way and record number of birds observed in 2010, the decrease is uncertain.
  • T6946 - Based on data only from IR. Increase also registered in IQ, but it is uncertain whether this is the result of relocation of birds from unmonitored areas elsewhere or genuine increase.
