Justification of Red List category

Surveys have now located this species on more than 120 islands. While it is only found on predator-free islands, rat eradication programmes appear to have helped this species and the population trend appears to have been stable for some time. The species is no longer considered to approach the threshold for Vulnerable under any criterion and so has been downlisted to Least Concern.

Population size: 12000

Population trend: Stable

Extent of occurrence (breeding/resident): 29,200 km2

Country endemic: Yes

Land-mass type - shelf island
