Notes

  • S428 - 64: European breeding population 120,000-260,000 pairs (360,000 - 780,000 individuals).
  • S8286 - 134,974-206,692 pairs (European Topic Centre on Biological Diversity, in prep., BirdLife International et al., in prep.). BirdLife International (2004) has reported an additional 26,710-44,170 from AL, AZ, HR, GR, MD, RS and UA. This yields a population estimate of160,684-250,862 pairs, i.e. 485,000-750,000 individuals.
  • T6286 - Only 3 countries with small populations reported any trend (European Topic Centre on Biological Diversity, in prep., BirdLife International et al., in prep.). The trend for the RU population which consists majority of the European breeding pairs is unknown or fluctuating together with 13 or the 26 countries that submitted data to the EU Birds Directive Art. 12 reporting and European Red List of Birds processes.
  • S9001 - 161,334-250,610 pairs
  • T7083 - The trend is unknown in 15 countries, stable or fluctuating in 17, declining in 3 and increasing in 1.
