  • T738 - 898. Trend 1983-2007: +1.6% p.a. – Increase. 64: Trend of Icelandic breeding population is unknown.
  • S8319 - BirdLife et al. (in prep) maintained the estimate in Thorup (2006). However, this is in contradicts winter counts, which are much lower. See discussion in Delany et al. (2009). Therefore, that estimate is retained here.
  • T6319 - No trend data from breeding ground, wintering population is mixed with britannica and the combined trend shows large decline (Nagy et al., 2014, van Roomen et al. in prep). It is unclear whether this decline reflect change in the britannica subspecies only or in both subspecies.
  • S9025 - BirdLife et al. (2015) maintained the estimate in Thorup (2006). However, this is in contradicts winter counts, which are much lower. See discussion in Delany et al. (2009). Therefore, that estimate is retained here.
  • T7122 - No trend data from breeding ground, wintering population is mixed with britannica and the combined trend shows large decline (Nagy et al., 2014, van Roomen 2015). It is unclear whether this decline reflect change in the britannica subspecies only or in both subspecies.
