Notes

  • T3663 - 700: Population decreased moderately 1993-2002 in Central Europe and West Mediterranean, but apparently increased somewhat in East Mediterranean.
  • T6114 - Wetlands International 2012. Trend 1983-2007: -1.2% p.a. ? Significant long-term decline. BirdLife International 2004b indicates decline in the large Russian population, the main source of this wintering population.
  • T3666 - 914. Decreasing in Central Europe, West Mediterranean, and East Mediterranean/Black Sea
  • T3667 - 898. Trend 1983-2007: -1.2% p.a. – Significant long-term decline. 64 indicates decline in the large Russian population, the main source of this wintering population.
  • S8553 - The population size was estimated by Delany et al. (1999) at 600,000 individuals based on the results of the IWC counts in 1995 and 1996. However, the population has decreased substantially since then. The average count total was only 209,514 individuals during the period of 2008-2012 and the sum of the site-level 5-year means was 316,440 individuals during the same period. The national wintering population estimates from ES, PT, FR, IT, CH, AT, HU, SK, GR, BG, RO, TR, CY and BY add up to 160,966-254,524 individuals (European Topic Centre on Biological Diversity, in prep.), but does not include the countries from the former Yugoslavia, where RS can support around 11,000, ME some 7,000, MK 4,000, HR, 8,000, AL c. 3,000, IL 16,000, EG 10,000 and DZ, TN, LY c. 1,000 birds (Wetlands International, 2014). Currently, the population is estimated to be between 400,000 and 500,000 individuals accounting for uncounted areas including GE and MD.
  • T6546 - The IWC trend analysis shows large decrease both in the short and the long-term (Nagy et al., 2014). This agrees well with the trends derived from the national trend estimates ES, PT, FR, IT, CH, AT, HU, SK, GR, BG, RO, TR, CY and BY (2000-2012: 0.9625-099892, 1980-2012: 0.9825-0.9959, European Topic Centre on Biological Diversity, in prep., BirdLife International et al., in prep.).
  • T6954 - Long-term trend (1967-2015) is still positive: 1.0076 (SE 0.0036) .
