Updates of these surveys of surveys proofed to be very useful tool for assessment of current status of bird monitoring, identification gaps and areas for further development. Overview of bird monitoring schemes is also a useful source of information for those who seek to establish a new scheme, improve a current one or just to get more information on bird monitoring in consice form.
Pan-European Common Bird Monitoring Scheme (PECBMS) found information from such a review extremely useful and it was decided to update information from the previous review and make the information available. Thus, a new review was completed and results are presented in this paper.

This report is the third update of European wild bird indicators produced by Pan-European Common Bird Monitoring Scheme (PECBMS). The report contains main outputs in form of graphs as well as data and methods descriptions.
This report presents an enlarged set of population trends and indices of 124 common bird species in Europe, which have been produced by Pan-European Common Bird Monitoring Scheme in early 2007. The trends and indices presented in this report cover time period 1980 – 2005, although data back to 60s are available from some European countries.
