House Fly? Blow Fly?

bournemouth, United Kingdom

Not sure what this fly is but I saw it in Dorset today. There were lots of shiny blue and shiny green flies as well. All quite small.

The first one appears to be a hover fly (family Syrphidae). Compare with Rhingia rostrata -
The greenish one likely is a blow fly (family Calliphoridae), but I would like to see a full dorsal view.
