Notes

  • T7805 - In CN, the population of non-breeding birds has risen in Tibet, primarily due to increasing agricultural development in the Penbo and the Nyang Qu River valleys, while numbers in Yunnan–Guizhou Plateau show a relatively stable trend (Liu et al. 2017). In IN, the population at some locations has increased such as Pong Dam, while nationwide an uncertain current and long-term trend (-13.4%) as per SoIB (2020).
