Notes

  • S6975 - Revised estimate is based on a single survey from a site in NW Australia, which yielded a count more than twice the previous flyway estimate. Assessments of total numbers are hindered by wide dispersion of non-breeding birds in areas where surveying is difficult and rarely possible.
