Notes

  • S8392 - European Topic Centre on Biological Diversity (in prep.) and BirdLife International et al. (in prep.) estimates 30,785-48,369 pairs for AT, ES, FI, IT,NO, RO, RU, SE and UK. BirdLife International (2004) further 4-24 pairs from AD, CZ, FR, GR and PL. This yields a population estimate of 30,789-48,393 pairs, i.e. 92,000-145,000 individuals after rounding.
  • T6392 - Decline reported from AT, RU and UK, stable in FI, SE and ES, unknown in NO, IT and RO (European Topic Centre on Biological Diversity, in prep., BirdLife International, in prep.). Considering that the current trend is unknown in NO and unquantified in RU, the current trend in unknown.
