Notes

  • T4874 - Wetlands International 2012. Trend 1990-2006: -0.2% p.a. ? Uncertain.
  • T734 - 898. Trend 1990-2006: -0.2% p.a. – Uncertain.
  • S8317 - 115,479-210,140 pairs in continental Europe except CZ, HR, RS, ME, AL, MK and UA (European Topic Centre on Biological Diversity, in prep., BirdLife International et al., in prep.). BirdLife International (2004) estimated further 14,431-23,630 pairs in the latter countries. This yields a total estimate of 129,910-233,770 pairs. Assuming, based on Thorup et al. (2006) that 75% of the bird in European RU belong to this population and following the 50% reduction for TR, both suggested by Delany et al. (2009), the adjusted total is 124,160-221,270 pairs, i.e. 372,000-664,000 individuals.
  • T6317 - Decreased in EE, LT, BG, SK, PL, DK, NL, BE and TR, increased only in SI and FR, stable or fluctuating in BY, GR, HU, AT, DE, ES and unknown in RU, LV, RO, PT and IT, but it was deemed stable for RU in BirdLife International (2004). Overall trend for 2000-2012: 09637-1.0182, for 1980-2012: 0.9919-1.0027, i.e. statistically uncertain. Trend estimate quality is based on reliable quantitative data in 6 out of 22 countries.
  • S9024 - 121,179-221,120 pairs in continental Europe (BirdLife International 2015) Assuming, based on Thorup (2006), that 75% of the bird in European RU belong to this population and following the 50% reduction for TR, both suggested by Delany et al. (2009).
