Notes

  • S8329 - 15,153-50,206 pairs in Europe (European Topic Centre on Biological Diversity, in prep., BirdLife International et al., in prep.) without UA where 300-500 pairs (BirdLife International, 2004). This yields 46,000-150,000 non-breeding individuals in Europe. Tertickiy et al. (1999) estimated the population in the Yamalsk-Nenets Autonomous Area at 280-650 individuals, but this represents only a small part of the range beyond the Ural.
  • T6329 - European Topic Centre on Biological Diversity (in prep.) and BirdLife International et al. (in prep.) indicated that the species is declining in RU and FI.
  • S9031 - 15,453-50,706 pairs in Europe (BirdLife International 2015). Tertickiy et al. (1999) estimated the population in the Yamalsk-Nenets Autonomous Area at 280-650 individuals, but this represents only a small part of the range beyond the Ural.
  • T7131 - BirdLife International (2015) assessed the short-term trend as declining based on estimates from RU and FI. Trend based on small number of birds counted during the IWC suggests stable trend (Wetlands International 2017) although a negative trend could be also observed up to the mid-2000s.
