Range DescriptionThis speciesbreeds in Algeria, Croatia, France, Greece, Italy, Malta, Spain (excluding the Canary Islands), Tunisia and Turkey (Derh 2012). The majority of the population spends the non-breeding season in the Atlantic, including areas off the west coast of Africa and east coast of Brazil (Pron et al. 2012). The global population is thought to be in slow decline overall, although more research is required (Derh 2012, Carboneras et al. 2013).
