As far as I can tell this is a juvenile. It seemed to sit there and screem for food.

I don´t see much of this bird since I sold my kayak. But this day I had them right in front of me. I can´t remember seeing this behaviour of the juvenile bird. Going so low in the water when begging. 

In the first image I think the eyes looks weird. But maybe they have a protective lens to protect the eyes when diving?

Sparvhök - Accipiter nisus - Sparrowhawk

 The young Sparrowhawk surprised me as I rarely see any.
Here it sits on the roadside security beam showing off it´s dirty feet. Fooled me a lot as I thought they were black not yellow.

I am told young ones often have eyes in the neck. As this one clearly have.

In the end of July the Lapwings are gathering. When they take to the wings they actually glitters in the sky.

They are already heading south but not in much hurry. They can even stay a while at this little pond behind a barn.
