Notes

  • S8331 - The size of the population in European RU is estimated of 450,000-900,000 pairs, i.e. 1,350,000-2,700,000 inidviduals (European Topic Centre on Biological Diversity, in prep., BirdLife International et al., in prep.). 125,000-240,000 pairs in the Yamalo-Nenetsky Autonomous Area (Tertickiy et al. 1999), but this represents still only part of the breeding range.
  • T6331 - Trend in European RU is estimated to be stable (BirdLife International et al., in prep.), but unknown for W Siberia.
  • S9033 - 457,000-913,600 pairs in AM, AZ, RU, TR and UA (BirdLife International 2015). 125,000-240,000 pairs in the Yamalo-Nenetsky Autonomous Area (Tertickiy et al. 1999), but this represents still only part of the breeding range.
  • T7133 - Trend in European RU is estimated to be stable (BirdLife International 2015). This is consistent with the results of the trends based on mid-winter counts (Wetlands International 2017)
