Notes

  • S533 - 277: Surveys reported in 276 suggest a population of 5,000 and declining in Morocco. 7 estimates 90 pairs (270 individuals) in Spain.
  • S8290 - 200-300 pairs in MO (Dodman, 2014), C. 50 pairs in ES (European Topic Centre on Biological Diversity, in prep.). However, numbers estimated between 25-100 pairs in ES (Green in litt. 2014).
  • T6290 - ES autonomous regions reported fluctuating trend (European Topic Centre on Biological Diversity, in prep.). Green (in litt, 2014) suggests that the rapid decline continues.
  • S9081 - Five year mean of count totals is c. 2,500 individuals. The maximum count is 5,126 individuals.
  • T7086 - Earlier assessments were based on data from ES which represents only a small fraction of the population. The new assessment is based on IWC counts from both ES and MA. Strong increase in the long-term.
  • S9301 - The size of the breeding population is estimated at 221-345 pairs, or 660-1,000 individuals after rounding in ES (BirdLife International, in prep) and MA (Amhaouch et al., 2020). The wintering population is estimated at 5,000 individuals in ES, MA by the same sources. The highest annual IWC count total between 2014–2018 was 5,158 individuals (Nagy & Langendoen, 2020).
  • T7390 - It is estimated that the breeding population has decreased by 16-38% in ES between 2009 and 2018 (BirdLife International, in prep). No quantitative trend information is available from MA (Amhaouch et al., 2020), but they reported an increasing short-term trend for the wintering season. Based on IWC data, Nagy & Langendoen (2020) reported also an overall increase from 1990 to 2017. The trend for the period of 2002-2017 was uncertain with an increasing tendency (1.0364). However, the uncertain trend for 2008-2017 had a negative tendency.
