Notes

  • S1620 - Previous estimate of 145,000-280,000 did not include Asian breeding range, which extends to Bering Sea. 33: 500 winter in India.
  • T4388 - Wetlands International 2012. Trend 1983-2007: -4.9% p.a. ? Decline. However, trend in vast African portion of range poorly known.
  • T1157 - 898. Trend 1983-2007: -4.9% p.a. – Decline. However, trend in vast African portion of range poorly known.
  • S8381 - Tertickiy et al. (1999) estimated the population in West Siberia at 450-1,000K birds, which Lappo et al. (2012) considers to be an overestimate. Tomkovich & Mischenko (in litt, 2014) suggests that numbers in W Siberaia similar to Europe or slightly more.
