Boumezbeur (1992) estimated the Algerian population (in El Kala National Park) at over 210 birds in March 1992. A. ) suggests that the total population in Algeria and Tunisia currently numbers about 400 individuals. • Southeast Europe/Turkey/Southwest Asia: 8,000–15,000. 1% level 115. As recently as the early 1990s, the population of O. leucocephala in southeast Europe and Southwest Asia was thought to number about 17,000 birds (Green & Anstey, 1992). Krivenko (1993) gives an estimate of 15,000 for the total population at the end of the breeding season in Kazakhstan and the Caspian region.

Very common in some locations, such as certain western lakes and rivers. About 500 were present at Lake Bemamba in July–August 1992. A total of 4,135 was recorded during the African Waterfowl Census in July 1993. Habitat/ecology: Dendrocygna viduata is found on waters of many kinds, including freshwater lakes, dams, swamps, flooded land and estuaries. In many areas, the species commonly feeds in rice-fields. It breeds mainly during the late wet season and early dry season (September to December in Togo, November to March in western Madagascar), while D.

Handrinos (1995) lists the known sites in Greece and Annex 2 provides an extensive key sites listing for the Algeria/Tunisia and southeast Europe/Turkey/ Southwest Asia populations. In southeast Europe/Turkey/Southwest Asia few key sites can be identified outside of winter. In autumn concentrations have been found in Turkey (300 at Sodah Gol and 500 Moulting at Kulu Golu) and in Russia (1000 at Manych-Godilo Lakes) but more sites surely exist. The maximum breeding concentrations appear to be small colonies of up to 20 pairs in Turkey and Turkmenistan but very little is known about breeding densities in the major areas to the North of the population range.
