Population justification: In Europe, the breeding population is estimated to number 7,810,000-14,100,000 pairs, which equates to 15,600,000-28,300,000 mature individuals (BirdLife International 2015). Europe forms c.25% of the global range, so a very preliminary estimate of the global population size is 62,400,000-113,200,000 mature individuals, although further validation of this estimate is needed.

Trend justification: In Europe the overall trend from 1980 to 2013 was decreasing (EBCC 2015).
