Population justification: The European population is estimated at 4,000-6,100 pairs, which equates to 8,000-12,100 mature individuals (BirdLife International 2015). Europe forms <5% of the global range so a very preliminary estimate of the global population size is 160,000-242,000 mature individuals, although further validation of this estimate is needed. The population is therefore placed in the band 150,000-249,999 mature individuals.

Trend justification: The population is suspected to be stable in the absence of evidence for any declines or substantial threats. The European population is also estimated to be stable (BirdLife International 2015).
