Population justification: The global population is estimated to number c.50,000-220,000 individuals (Wetlands International 2015). The European population is estimated at 12,800-48,400 males, which equates to 25,600-96,700 mature individuals (BirdLife International 2015).

Trend justification: The overall population trend is decreasing, although some populations are stable (Wetlands International 2015). The European population is estimated to be decreasing (BirdLife International 2015).
