Notes

  • S6548 - Estimate and trend retained from WPE4; not reassessed due to lack of new information. Ongoing comprehensive analysis by University of Queensland is anticipated to shortly provide a reassessment. Population generally occurs at low density, aggregations of up to a few hundred birds occur at a small number of sites on non-breeding grounds.
