Notes

  • S1813 - Sometimes included in Vanellinae. 344: undercounted or missed in vast inland wetlands, so estimate revised to range 25,000 - 100,000 rather than former 26,000 (697).
  • S6982 - Estimate based on a broader interpretation of 1993 estimate, yet more conservative than WPE4.
  • T4463 - Numbers greatly affected by flood /drought.cycles over inland breeding areas.
