European wild bird indicators and Trends of common birds in Europe, 2018 update

The Pan-European Common Bird Monitoring Scheme (PECBMS) presents a set of updated European wild bird indicators for the time period 1980-2016.

The indicators are computed for Europe and its regions (West, North, Central & East and South Europe), and EU, New and Old EU states for common farmland, common forest, and all common birds. Both single European and BioGeo regional species habitat classification are used to assess if each bird species belongs to farmland, forest or other indicator.

We also bring updated population trends and indices of 170 common European bird species for the time period 1980-2016 that have been produced by the Pan-European Common Bird Monitoring Scheme (PECBMS) in 2018. The species trends presented are for long time period (from 1980 onwards until 2016) and for last ten years (2007-2016).
