Notes

  • T882 - Increasing in Australia (616) but decreasing in Japan and Korea (466), suggesting possibility of a shift in wintering range.
  • S6726 - Estimate retained from WPE4; not re-assessed due to lack of new information. Ongoing comprehensive analysis by University of Queensland is anticipated to shortly provide a reassessment.
  • T4207 - Some evidence of decline and of increase; no overall clear trend identified at present. Ongoing comprehensive analysis by University of Queensland is anticipated to shortly provide a reassessment.
