In 2005, the author started to mark Terek Sandpipers as part of a research and conservation project. Here he reports the resightings of Terek Sandpipers (i.e. individuals identified by colour rings or by reading the number of the metal ring without capturing the bird) and recoveries (i.e. birds with metal ring only that were caught or found dead) outside the breeding sites. He combines data from the literature and own data and discusses what these records tell us about the migration and wintering sites of the Finnish Terek Sandpipers.
