waders and more waders, South Finland

Waders give me an headache.
What I think:
1- Common Redshank
2- Common Greenshank
3- ???
4- Some juvenile Redshank (or maybe spotted redshank)?

What do you think?
Thanks in advance.
Luis

3 is a juvenile redshank, others correct but i think 4 is an adult.

humm, I was curious on 4 because of the beak, that colour transition looked to me that it was still transitioning to adult, but I agree that the rest of the body looks quite adult (although quite dark and more spotted than the other redshanks).
