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 report summarizes the activities of the Pan-European Common Bird Monitoring Scheme (PECBMS) from July 2013 to December 2013. We have updated European population indices and common bird indicators covering record number of species and countries. PECBMS results have been widely used for research and policy incl. international initiatives Wildlife Comeback in Europe and Red List of European Birds. New support from the European Commission will help the programme to deliver its outputs on regular basis and improve the scheme.
This report presents an updated population trends and indices of 163 common European bird species for the time period 1980 - 2011 that have been produced by the Pan-European Common Bird Monitoring Scheme (PECBMS) in 2013.
Check also the updated common bird indicators for Europe, EU and their regions for the same time period.
Pan-European Common Bird Monitoring Scheme (PECBMS) presents a set of updated European wild bird indicators for the time period 1980 - 2011. 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 habitat.
The leaflet ´Population Trends of Common European Breeding Birds 2013´ summarizes the latest results for the time period 1980 - 2011.
The report summarizes the activities of the Pan-European Common Bird Monitoring Scheme (PECBMS) from July 2012 to December 2012. Due to funding uncertainties, we focused our work on maintaining the core activities and securing funding for the PECBMS. Nevertheless, we have started to collect national data for the next update of PECBMS outputs. Updated European species trends and indicators are expected to be published in June 2013.
The report summarizes the activities of the Pan-European Common Bird Monitoring Scheme (PECBMS) from December 2011 to June 2012. Main achievements include updated and published European indices and indicators in June 2012. The results have been promoted in the leaflet as well as on the website. The successful PECBMS workshop for all co-workers was held in February 2012 in the Czech Republic.
