IBA Criteria

Year of most recent IBA criteria assessment: 2010

Populations of IBA trigger species
Species Current IUCN Red List Category Season Year(s) of estimate Population estimate IBA Criteria Triggered
Bean Goose Anser fabalis LC passage 2007-2008 8,000 individuals C3
Common Crane Grus grus LC passage 2004-2009 1,500-3,000 individuals C2
Eurasian Curlew Numenius arquata NT passage 2005-2007 44 individuals C1

Note: This table presents the IBA criteria triggered and the species that triggered then at the time of assessment, the current IUCN Red List category may vary from that which was in place at that time.
