Population justification: In Europe, the breeding population is estimated to number 2,910,000-5,740,000 pairs, which equates to 5,830,000-11,500,000 mature individuals (BirdLife International 2015). Europe forms c.55% of the global range, so a very preliminary estimate of the global population size is 10,600,000-20,900,000 mature individuals, although further validation of this estimate is needed.

Trend justification: The population is estimated to be in decline following local decreases (del Hoyo et al. 2007). In Europe, trends between 1980 and 2013 show that populations have undergone a moderate decline (EBCC 2015).
