Notes

  • S635 - 356 estimates 250,000 for European part of range.
  • S8297 - Updated estimates from EE, FI, LT, LV and PL suggest 810-1,070 pairs (European Topic Centre on Biological Diversity, in prep.), but further 55,100-146,700 pairs in BY, UA and RU (BirdLife International, 2004). This yields an estimate of 55,910-147,770 pairs, i.e. 167,000-443,000 individuals in Europe alone. Tertickiy (1999) estimated 100,000-360,000 pairs in West Siberia, which Lappo et al. (2012) considers to be an overestimate. Tomkovich & Mischenko (in litt. 2014) suggest doubling the estimate for EU RU.
  • T6297 - BirdLife International (2004) reported 20-29% decline in European RU, 30-49% in UA, 0-19% in BY. European Topic Centre on Biological Diversity (in prep.) reports decline from LT and PL and stable trend in EE and LV. Delaney et al. (2009) provides additional evidence of decline.
  • S9012 - 55,352-127,017 pairs in Europe, but size of the population in West Siberia is unknown.
