Windscreen Sensors

I've just had to have my windscreen replaced on my Civic 1.8 ES i-VTEC due to stone cracking it. Now I know there is a rain sensor and a sunlight sensor, but the guy says there is another one on there too. The sunlight sensor is on the dash and the rain sensor is up behind the rear view mirror, but what is the sensor under that, if it is one? It might just be part of the mirror fixing, but I'm curious now.

The sunlight sensor on the dash is linked to the climate control. There are two sensors on the windscreen, one for the lights and the other for the wipers but I'm not sure which is which on the picture.

I think the top one is for the lights. Bst way would be to cover one of them up with say a towel and look to see if your lights come on

The top is for rain, lower opening is a lights sensor which has two sets, one for above light, one forward looking.
