  • S8254 - Historical mid-winter count maximum in January 2013 (Wetlands International, 2014).
  • T6254 - Trend 1988-2012: +9.66% p.a., 2003-2012: 5.24% p.a. (Nagy et al., 2014). Trend 1958-2009: +7.7% p.a. Trend 1995-2009: +2.9% p.a. (Fox et al., 2011).
  • S9053 - Jongejans et al. (2015) reported an average estimate of 139,000 individuals for the period of 2008-2012. However, the average IWC January count totals for 2011-2015 even without any accounting for missing counts have reached 167,000 individuals with 252,781 and 178,277 individuals in 2012 and 2013 respectively (Wetlands International unpublished data). As this might be caused by influx from other populations, the five-year mean is used as a population size estimate.
  • S9186 - Five-year mean of IWC count totals in AT, BA, HR, CZ, SW DE, HU, IT, ME, MK, RS, SK, SI and CH. The vast majority of birds are counted in HU, RS, CZ, HR and IT. Minimum: 120,627 in 2016, maximum: 378,514 in 2017 (Nagy & Langendoen, 2020).
