Notes

  • S6878 - E and W populations often considered separate but some movement does occur between the regions occupied. Annual monitoring of a key coastal site and a national survey of waterbirds provided end-of-drought counts for E and W which, when combined, provided basis for a revised estimate (considerably higher than the WPE4 estimate). Numbers were augmented by a massive breeding event in 2010 but effective recruitment to overall population size is yet to be quantified. Estimated minimum and maximum are provided, to account for uncertainties regarding E and W populations.
