Twelve Chionis alba, 12 Pelecanoides georgicus and 5 P. urinatrix collected from Bird Island, South Georgia, Antarctica, were examined for helminths. 11 C. alba were found to harbour Gymnophallus deliciosus, Notocotylus chionis, Paramonostomum signiensis, Lateriporus australis and Corynosoma hammani. Pelecanoides georgicus and P. urinatrix each harboured Tetrabothrius sp. and Stegophorus heardi, the first record of Tetrabothrius from P. georgicus and of S. heardi from P. urinatrix.
