Notes

  • T4731 - Wetlands International 2012. Trend 1988-2006: +6.2% p.a. ? Increase.
  • T484 - 898. Trend 1988-2006: +6.2% p.a. – Increase.
  • S8293 - The average IWC count total was 516,191 individuals during the period of 2008-2012. The sum of the site-level 5-year means was 1.421,369 individuals during the same period. The peak count was 1,538,658 in 2007. Considering that important parts of the region were not counted, the estimate of 2,000,000 birds for this population (Perennou et al. 1994) appears to be still valid.
  • T6293 - IWC data shows large increase until 2007 followed by a large decrease (Nagy et al., 2014). However, IWC coverage is sparse in the region and weather related shifts and variable counting effort can highly distort the results.
  • T7089 - Stable long-term trend.
