Notes

  • T815 - 171: There is strong evidence of long-term declines through the 1990s in most major West African wintering areas, following increases in the 1980s.
  • T4175 - Delany et al. 2009. Long term-decline through the ?90s suspected based on major West African wintering grounds, but no evidence of decline from breeding grounds. BirdLife International 2004b: Stable in most breeding countries except Sweden and Estonia, wh
  • T817 - 870. Long term-decline through the ‘90s suspected based on major West African wintering grounds, but no evidence of decline from breeding grounds. 64: Stable in most breeding countries except Sweden and Estonia, where declined during the ‘90s.
  • S8333 - 20,910-37,080 pairs in SE, FI, RU, EE and DK (European Topic Centre on Biological Diversity, in prep., BirdLife International et al., in prep.). Van Roomen et al. (2014) accounted for only 28,089 individuals at the wintering grounds.
  • T6333 - National trends of breeding birds are unknown in NO and RU, stable in SJ and DK and decreasing in SE, FI and EE (European Topic Centre on Biological Diversity, in prep., BirdLife International et al., in prep.). The trend based on IWC counts is stable/fluctuating both in the short- and in the long-term (1993-2014 and 2003-2014, respectively) according to van Roomen et al. (2014).
  • S9034 - 15,911-37,085 pairs Van Roomen et al. (2014) accounted for only 28,089 individuals at the wintering grounds.
  • T7135 - Both breeding and non-breeding trends show long-term declines, which appear to have slowed down in recent years.
