Indeling

Muscicapidae [familie]
Saxicola [genus] (4/2)
rubicola [soort]

The distribution is strongly associated with sandy soils. Highest densities occur in heaths and peat moors. Farmland supports in general only small numbers. Although the current population is thriving, the species has contracted its breeding range since the 1970s, due to intensification of farmland use. Population in 1998-2000 is estimated at 6500-7000 bp (4100-5800 in mid-1970s, 1600-2300 in early-1980s).
