Population justification: The global population size has not been quantified, but the species is described as fairly common to locally abundant in southern Russia, rare in China and locally frequent in winter in Pakistan (del Hoyo et al. 2005).

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