Notes

  • S415 - 64: European breeding population 61,000-140,000 pairs (183,000 - 420,000 individuals).
  • S8284 - 6,305-15,146 pairs in FI, FR, HU, IT, LT, LV, PL, RO, SI and SK (European Topic Centre on Biological Diversity, in prep.). An additional 38,735-98,040 pairs are estimated in the other European countries based on data from BirdLife International (2004). This yields a population estimate of 45,040-113,186 pairs, i.e. 135,000-340,000 individuals.
  • T6284 - In general, the trend of the national populations are not known (European Topic Centre on Biological Diversity, in prep.). BirdLife International (2004) assessed the trend as small decline mainly based on the alleged decline in Ukraine, which is the stronghold of the species, but no reference is provided. New national reports assess the trend as unknown, fluctuating or increasing.
  • S8999 - 54,960 - >82,945 pairs
  • T7081 - Majority of national trend are unknown (17), fluctuating (4) or increasing (3 including RU). Reported to decline only from SK and MD.
