striata [soort]

Distributional gaps are only recorded in some of the most open areas, although the species does frequent woodlots and gardens in open farmland. Densities are rather poorly assessed, as the species is very unobtrusive. However, the suggestion of a preference for old deciduous woods, small-scale farmland and villages with old parks and gardens is correct. Slight population decreases in farmland since the 1970s (perhaps underestimated) and, since the 1980s, in woodland have not yet resulted in a serious contraction in breeding range. Population in 1998-2000 is estimated at 20,000-30,000 bp (50,000-100,000 in early 1980s).
