Notes

  • S8298 - European Topic Centre on Biological Diversity (in prep.) and BirdLife International et al. (in prep.) provide an updated estimate of 19,650-43,186 pairs for BY, EE, FI, LT, LV, NO, RU and SE based on national estimates from the period of 2000-2012 which is considerably smaller than the 2.5-3m individuals calculated by Kalchreuter (2002). Therefore the earlier estimate is retained following Delany et al. (2009).
  • T6298 - Each country reported stable population trend to European Topic Centre on Biological Diversity (in prep.) and BirdLife International et al. (in prep.).
  • S9010 - 19,630-44,086 pairs in Europe (BirdLife International 2015) which is considerably smaller than the 2.5-3m individuals calculated by Kalchreuter (2002). Therefore the earlier estimate is retained following Delany et al. (2009).
  • T7101 - Each country reported stable population trend to BirdLife International (2015).
