Notes

  • S8382 - 70,674-101,573 breeding pairs in EU MSs except GR and CZ (European Topic Centre on Biological Diversity, in prep.), further 18,715-32,150 pairs in UA (50%), MD, GR, CZ, CH, HR, MK, AL, NO, BY and RS&ME (BirdLife International, 2004). This yields a total estimate of 89,389-133.723 pairs, i.e 270,000-400,000 individuals after rounding, which also makes allowance for birds breeding in North Africa. The increase is the result of a magnitude higher estimates from ES, i.e. 33,050 pairs vs. 2,500-3,3,00 pairs in BirdLife International (2004).

  • S8942 - 84,614 - 123,773 pairs in Europe, rounded up to make allowance for birds in N Africa.
