Population justification: Rich et al. (2004) estimated the global population to number 2,000,000 individuals. In Europe, the breeding population is estimated to number 1,170,000-1,950,000 pairs, which equates to 2,340,000-3,890,000 mature individuals (BirdLife International 2015). Europe forms c.15% of the global range, so a very preliminary estimate of the global population size is 15,600,000-25,950,000 mature individuals, although further validation of this estimate is needed. The population in Russia has been estimated at c.10,000-100,000 breeding pairs (Brazil 2009).

Trend justification: The population is estimated to be in decline following recorded decreases and range contractions, perhaps owing to habitat management practices and climate change (del Hoyo et al. 2007). The European population trend is estimated to be decreasing (BirdLife International 2015).
