Population justification: There is little recent information on this species's population size. It was formerly regarded as widespread and common over much of its non-breeding range in India and Pakistan, though irregular to rare in the rest of its range.

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