    It would have been good if data from the African Waterfowl Census in Kenya were consulted. Although with some year data gaps, it has been running since 1991 thus providing some trend in the local (Kenyan/EA) population. However, while I support the proposal, we should be worried of the impacts of the rising water levels in the Rift Valley Lakes some of which the species has been recorded. These are perhaps the impacts of climate change that may affect the species negatively through loss of foraging niche.
