Justification of Red List category
This species is listed as Vulnerable owing to a moderately rapid population reduction, which is thought to be the result of prey depletion owing to agricultural intensification and the consequent over-use of pesticides and rodenticides. Even though the species occurs localised over a large range, no localities are separated by geographic barriers, and a low level of migration between localities indicate that all individuals belong to the same subpopulation.

Population size: 2500-9999

Population trend: Decreasing

Extent of occurrence (breeding/resident): 3,120,000 km2

Country endemic: No

Realm - Indomalayan
Realm - Palearctic
IUCN Ecosystem -- Terrestrial biome
