Brushane - Philomachus pugnax - Ruff

I was surprised to see a lot of Ruffs on the location today. The season for migrating vaders should be mostly over. I think this is juveniles just taking a break.

Törnsångare - Sylvia communis - Common Whitethroat

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

Click to see with Light box
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.
