Notes

  • S6632 - Delany et al. 2009. Almost no information is available on the size of this population. Thorup (2006) assigned the 1,220-2,170 pairs breeding in south and south-east Russia to this form, but the numbers breeding in South-west Asia are unknown and probably very low. It is likely that the total is fewer than 10,000 individuals.
