Conservation status

The European penduline tit considerably expanded its range westwards between the 1930s and the 1980s. Likewise, the Chinese penduline tit (Remiz consobrinus) has also increased in observed numbers on migration and on its wintering sites. Others, such as the white-crowned (Remiz coronatus) and black-headed tits, are not faring as well in face of the relentless intensification of agriculture and development of land. Some species though, especially the Anthosco-

pus, are described as uncommon but may simply be overlooked by observers.
