Population justification: The global population size has not been quantified, though in Europe, the breeding population is estimated to number 100-500 breeding pairs, equating to 300-1,500 individuals (BirdLife International 2004), with Europe forming <5% of the global range. The population in Russia has been estimated at c.100-10,000 breeding pairs (Brazil 2009).

Trend justification: The population is suspected to be stable in the absence of evidence for any declines or substantial threats. The trend of the tiny European population is not known (BirdLife International 2015).
