Population justification: Shirihai et al. (2001) estimated the population to exceed 10 million individuals, but in Europe, the breeding population is estimated to number 16,700,000-26,900,000 pairs, which equates to 33,300,000-53,800,000 mature individuals (BirdLife International 2015). Europe forms c.80% of the global range, so a very preliminary estimate of the global population size is 41,625,000-67,250,000 mature individuals, placed here in the range of 41,000,000-67,999,999 mature individuals; although further validation of this estimate is needed.

Trend justification: In Europe, trends between 1980 and 2013 show that populations have undergone a moderate decline (EBCC 2015).
