Twelve birds species of the suborder Charadrii of the families Charadriidae, Recurvirostridae, Scolopacidae, Glareolidae were examined at Syvash Lake (Ukraine) in spring 2011.

Aploparaksis octacantha from Calidris alpinà and Echinocotyloides dubininae from C. ferruginea are new geographical records for the first time in Ukraine. Glareola pratincola is a new host record for Nadejdolepis paranitidulans. Cestodes of the genus Microsomacanthus were found in waders apparently due to the infection (2.8 %) in their intermediate hosts, gammarid crustaceans.
