Population justification: The global population size has not been quantified.  In Europe, the breeding population is estimated to number 10,500-21,400 pairs, which equates to 21,000-42,900 mature individuals (BirdLife International 2015), but Europe forms <5% of the global range.

Trend justification: The global population is suspected to be stable in the absence of evidence for any declines or substantial threats.  The very small European population is estimated to be decreasing by less than 25% in 12.9 years (three generations) (BirdLife International 2015).
