Notes

  • S8576 - Accoriding to BirdLife International et al. (in prep.) The breeding population is 6,470-7,325 pairs, i.e. 19,000-22,000 individuals in RO, BY, UA and RU (80%). The avarege IWC count totals was 930 individuals between 2008 and 2010 and the sum of the site-level 5-year means was 4,330 individuals during the same period. However, the recent maximum was 4,074 individuals in 2004 (Wetlands International, 2014).
  • T6569 - No updated information is available.
  • S9071 - 7,290 - 9,745 pairs ( 22,000 - 29,000 individuals, 6,177 - 11, 785 wintering birds (BirdLife International 2015). The IWC count totals were around 166-355 individuals between 2011-2015 (Wetlands International 2017).
  • T6976 - Results of IWC trend analysis are highly uncertain (Wetlands International 2017). BirdLife International (2015) reported stable trends of wintering populations in most countries except RS, MD where increasing. The trend is unknown in ME, GE, GR and TR. Also the breeding trend is increasing in all countries except in RO where the trend of the small breeding population is unknown.
