Notes

  • T5729 - Wetlands International 2012. Trend 1983-2007: +1.26 ? Uncertain.
  • T2704 - 898. Trend 1983-2007: +1.26 – Uncertain.
  • T6260 - Trend 1988-2012: -17.7% decline. Longer term trend (1988-2012) is uncertain due to large number of missing counts. Trend is mainly driven by the declines in Iran.
  • S8919 - Cuthbert & Aarvak (2016) estimated c. 250,000 (177,700-320,000) individuals in Kazakhstan in the autumn of 2016. However, numbers from elsewhere in the region are not known.
  • S9180 - Cuthbert & Aarvak (2016) estimated c. 250,000 (177,700-320,000) individuals in Kazakhstan in the autumn of 2016. Mardonova (2020) reported 123,000-250,000 from UZ. However, it is unknown how these figures relate to the numbers estimated in KZ on autumn migration and no reports of wintering numbers from elsewhere in the region.
  • T7262 - The population has decreased at the rate of 7% annually. The trend is dominated by Iran, but declines can be observed in AZ and KZ (Nagy & Langendoen, 2020). Rozenfeld & Mischenko (2018) provides detailed account about the longer term changes in the breeding population.
