High densities are characteristic for the coasts in the north and southwest of the country. Inland breeding is mainly confined to coa­s­tal, somewhat saline farmland and the river area. Since 1973-77, an inland expansion occurred, resulting in probably self-sustaining populations here. In the coastal dunes, numbers dropped since the early 1980s, coinciding with the near-dis­appearance of rabbit populations (decline of available nest­holes) and atmospheric deposition (adverse foraging conditions for downy young). Breeding population of 5000-8000 bp in 1998-2000 and several 1000 non-breeding pairs (in some areas 25-50% of the total population).
