During the summer of 1982 waders, Charadriidae, were recorded regularly by FM in the station area of Ny-Alesund (78"55'N, ll"56'E). From 6 to 18 July waders were censused by HM and JF in a 6.32 kmz area around Ny-Alesund (Fig. 1). Parts of the area were covered each day and all birds seen were mapped. All suitable habitats were covered within a distance of 25-50111 at least once, and early snow-free ridges were surveyed especially.
