Notes

  • T4204 - Wetlands International 2012. Trend 1983-2007: +3.2% p.a. ? Increase. However, trend in large African portion of range poorly known.
  • T879 - 898. Trend 1983-2007: +3.2% p.a. – Increase. However, trend in large African portion of range poorly known.
  • S8591 - 270,828 individuals at the wintering areas. Rounded and raised to 300,000 (van Roomen et al). Breeding population in NO, FI and RU is 48,200-76,005 pairs (European Topic Center on Biological Diversity, in prep., BirdLife International et al., in prep.), i.e. 144,600-228,000 individuals.
  • T6584 - Lappo et al. (2012) suggested that the breeding population in RU is stable. However, Nagy et al. (2014) and van Roomen et al. (2014) showed rapid decrease in the short-term (2003-2012 and 2003-2014 respectively) in wintering numbers. The analysis of van Roomen et al. (2014) even indicate a significant long-term decline, which agrees well with Stroud et al. (2004).
  • S9037 - 270,828 individuals at the wintering areas. Rounded and raised to 300,000 (van Roomen et al. 2015). Breeding population in NO, FI and RU is 48,200-76,005 pairs (BirdLife International 2015), i.e. 144,600-228,000 individuals.
  • T7141 - Lappo et al. (2012) suggested that the breeding population in RU is stable. However, IWC trend analyses indicate decline both in the short and the long-term (van Roomen et al. 2015, Wetlands International 2017).
