Notes

  • T7187 - Reporting rate has declined in two-third of quarter degree grid cells and increased only in about one-third of quarter degree grid cells between SABAP1 and 2 based on data from the SABAP2 portal (ADU 2017). However, this may reflect the situation only in the southern part of the range. Based on this partial information, the species should be precautionally considered being in significant long-term decine.
