Notes

  • S8328 - 300,000-750,000 pairs, i.e. 900,000-2,250,000 individuals, in European RU (European Topic Centre on Biological Diversity, in prep., BirdLife International et al., in prep.). Tertickiy et al. (1999) estimated the West Siberian population at 5.7-8.6 millions of individuals, but Lappo et al. (2012) considers this to be an overestimate. 5-30 thousands in the lower Ob alone (Golovatin 2006).
