Notes

  • S418 - 64: European breeding population 760-3,200 pairs (2,280-9,600 individuals).
  • S8285 - 131-228 pairs in in BE, BG, DE, ES, FR, HU, NL, PT and RO (European Topic Centre on Biological Diversity, in prep.). An additional 690-2,925 pairs are estimated in the other European countries based on data from BirdLife International (2004). This yields a population estimate of 821-3,153 pairs, i.e. 2,460-9,460 individuals and the rounding applied reflects the uncertainties in estimating the numbers of this population.
  • T6285 - In general, the neither the population size and range trends are not known in in most of the countries: 6 out of the 9 EU Member States reported unknown short-term trend (European Topic Centre on Biological Diversity, in prep.), 16 out 21 national trends were unknown or uncertain in BirdLife International (2004) and the trend of the species was assessed as unknown, which assessment is adopted here.
  • S9000 - 978 - >1,409 pairs.
  • T7082 - The trend is unknown in 14 countries, increasing in 2 (including RU), stable or fluctuating in 4, declining only in ME.
