Population justification: The global population is estimated to number c.24,000-44,000 individuals (Wetlands International 2006), while national population estimates include: < c.10,000 breeding pairs and < c.1,000 individuals on migration in China; < c.50 individuals on migration and < c.50 wintering individuals in Taiwan; < c.10,000 breeding pairs, < c.1,000 individuals on migration and < c.50 wintering individuals in Korea and < c.10,000 breeding pairs and < c.1,000 individuals on migration in Russia (Brazil 2009). The European population is estimated at 9,800-13,900 pairs, which equates to 19,500-27,800 mature individuals (Birdife International 2015).

Trend justification: The overall population trend is uncertain, as some populations are decreasing, while others are increasing, stable or have unknown trends (Wetlands International 2006). The European population is estimated to be increasing (BirdLife International 2015).
