Notes

  • T6391 - Significant long-term decline (Stroud et al. 2002).
  • T7010 - The population is recignised as being in significant long-term decline based on Stroud et al. (2002). It is now considered to be regionally extinct from Europe (BirdLife International 2015), whereas populations in core of range thought to be fairly stable (Wiersma et al. 2017).
