Population justification: The global population size has not been quantified, but the species is reported to be common in Central Asia, locally common in winter in Pakistan, locally common in northern India and common in north-western Nepal (Flint et al. 1984, Grimmett et al. 1998), while the population in China has been estimated at c.100-10,000 breeding pairs (Brazil 2009).

Trend justification: The population is suspected to be stable in the absence of evidence for any declines or substantial threats.
