Justification of Red List category
Recent surveys from a limited part of the species's range suggest that it may have a very small population, split into multiple subpopulations; the largest of which is tentatively suspected to contain >1,000 mature individuals. Therefore, this species is listed as Near Threatened, but further evidence to show smaller population sizes could warrant uplisting to a higher threat category.

Population trend: decreasing

Extent of occurrence (breeding/resident): 140,000 km2

Country endemic: no

Land-mass type - continent
