Population justification: In Europe, the breeding population is estimated to number 14,400,000-19,700,000 pairs, which equates to 28,900,000-39,400,000 mature individuals (BirdLife International 2015).

Trend justification: The population is suspected to be increasing owing to a continuing westwards range expansion. The European population is estimated to be stable (BirdLife International 2015).
