Justification of Red List category
This species is listed as Near Threatened owing to a recent 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. This decline is thought to be on-going, and were it found to be greater in magnitude than currently thought, the species may be uplisted further.

Population size: 10000-19999

Population trend: Decreasing

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

Country endemic: No

Realm - Indomalayan
