Two for ID please...? Horsefly and Marsh fly sps

I think the horse fly is a Hybomitra, but ? H distinguenda. Seen at Burton Mere RSPB on the Wirral today :-)

The other mating pair I think are Marsh Flies. I tried using the key and the closest I could get was Ilione ablest from the wing patterns.

Thanks

The first two look like Hydromya dorsalis (Sciomyzidae)
