Interesting flies (to me) needing ID please and an odd one

All taken in SP289727 last couple of days in the evening.  I am fascinated by the tiny flies but camera struggles. The last one is a total mystery. I thought it was just a piece of foliage but very surprised when I enlarged it.  Eyes look like a flat hat.  Apologies if it is not a Diptera.

No.1 is Choromyia formosa (Stratiomyidae)
No.2 is Tephritis (Tephritidae)
No. 3 & 4 are Chrysotus (Dolichopodidae)
No. 5 is a mayfly - probably Cloeon dipterum

Oh I thought maybe a mayfly but couldn't find anything to guide me. Have just looked it up and seeing where to look it is obvious!   Am learning to be ready for a surprise when you see what you have taken on a screen.  Sweeping bushes must be a host of fascinating finds. Thanks so much and all will go on irecord.
