Notes

  • S5700 - Goldeneyes of Krasnoyarsk Region have been added to Caspian population breeding in West Siberia and wintering at Caspian Sea, in a Caspian-CentralAsian non-breeding population which breeds in West Siberia. The estimated number of Goldeneyes in Krasnoyarsk Region in late 1990s was 68,400 breeding pairs (574).
  • S8568 - Sklyarenko et al. (2008) set the 1% threshold for this population at 270 individuals, which means a middle point of 27,000, which is probably more realistic than the 100,000-1,000,000 estimate of Delany & Scott (2006) and close to Scott & Rose (1996) estimate. This figure is close to the maximum count of 21,850 individuals in 2004 (Solokha, 2006) during a comprehensive survey in the Caucasus and Central Asia.
