Population justification: The global population size has not been quantified, but the species is reported to be fairly common (Brazil 1991), while national population sizes have been estimated at c.100-100,000 breeding pairs and c.1,000-10,000 individuals on migration in Japan and c.100-10,000 breeding pairs and c.50-1,000 individuals on migration in Russia (Brazil 2009).

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