Population justification: The European population is estimated at 3,290,000-5,090,000 pairs, which equates to 6,570,000-10,200,000 mature individuals (BirdLife International 2015). Europe forms >95% of the global range. The global population is therefore placed in the band 6,500,000-10,499,999 mature individuals.

Trend justification: The European population is estimated to be increasing (BirdLife International 2015).
