What is Pan-European Common Bird Monitoring Scheme?

Pan-European Common Bird Monitoring Scheme (PECBMS) has commenced in January 2002. The main project goal is to use common birds as indicators of the general state of nature using scientific data on changes in breeding populations across Europe.

The latest data on European common birds, brought together by the Pan-European Common Bird Monitoring Scheme (PECBMS), shows a continued decline of European farmland birds. While the common forest birds are more or less stable over the last 10-15 years, the farmland birds show a staggering decline of 55% since 1980.


Common Farmland Bird Indicator, Europe, 2017 update



This report presents an updated population trends and indices of 170 common European bird species for the time period 1980-2015 that have been produced by the Pan-European Common Bird Monitoring Scheme (PECBMS) in 2017. The species trends presented are for long time period (from 1980 onwards until 2015) and for last ten years (2006-2015).
Updated common bird indicators for Europe, EU and their regions for the same time period can be found in a special report.



The Pan-European Common Bird Monitoring Scheme (PECBMS) presents a set of updated European wild bird indicators for the time period 1980-2015. 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.



New research, published in Conservation Letters, by a team of conservation researchers, including BirdLife Europe and its partners [1], shows that EU nature legislation and EU agriculture-environment schemes can help to preserve farmland birds, however their impact is weakened by the devastating impact of agriculture intensification.



This report presents an updated population trends and indices of 169 common European bird species for the time period 1980-2014 that have been produced by the Pan-European Common Bird Monitoring Scheme (PECBMS) in 2016. The species trends presented are for long time period (from 1980 onwards until 2014) and for last ten years (2005-2014).
