Population justification: Lethaby and King (2010) consider it unlikely that the population numbers more than a few thousand, and based on current knowledge, a population estimate of fewer than 10,000 mature individuals seems realistic.

Trend justification: The population is suspected to be decreasing. As Lethaby and King (2010) point out, historical records typically comprised of multiple specimens from a given location and include statements such as 'common', 'quite a colony', 'up to 15', and 'up to 30' that clearly indicate the existence of sizeable colonies, whereas recent records are usually of migrants in the lowlands, with the only definite breeding record being a colony of just 2-6 birds (Lethaby and King 2010).
