Population justification: The global population size has not been quatified, though national population sizes have been estimated at c.100-10,000 breeding pairs in Taiwan and c.100-10,000 breeding pairs in Japan (Brazil 2009).

Trend justification: The overall population trend is decreasing, although some populations have unknown trends (Wetlands International 2006).
