Scathophaga

The second one I agree with. Is the first one the same fly? If not, it may be a different Scathophaga, as the antennae appear orange. That may be a trick of the light, though.

Same ?

All I can add is that it looks like the same fly on the same leaf, perhaps the photographer can add more.

same fly

yes it is he same fly on the same leaf taken at the same time but from different angles as I have discovered sometimes it is easier to identify the more pictures there is. A dung fly would make sense as it is on a field full of sheep. It isn't in my book tho.

Sheep dung

They just love sheep dung, you can often see hundred's in a single field.
