Notes

  • T4387 - D.Unterkofler proposed trend "Unknown" for 2003-2012 based on Andres, B et. al. 2012.
  • S8587 - 206,569 were counted during January counts. Based on presumed underestimations raised to 240,000 birds.
  • T6580 - Based on mid-winter counts, stable/fluctuating both in the long- and in the short-term (1979-2014 and 2003-2014, respectively) according to van Roomen et al. (2014).
  • S8941 - 206,569 were counted during January counts. Based on presumed underestimations raised to 240,000 birds (van Roomen et al. 2015). This agrees with the lower estimate of Delany et al. (2009) and BirdLife International (2015), but takes also into account the ongoing decline of the population.
  • T6993 - Only the long-term trend is reported here because there are only a few years with sufficient data in the short-term.
