Not sure if this is a blue tailed damselfly or a common blue, difficult to tell from angle.

ID comment

Perhaps the biggest clues to the ID are the bi-coloured pterostigma (Small patches near the end of the wings) and the all blue abdominal segment 8.

Thanks for that Chris, the bi-coloured pterostigma are almost impossible to see on the FSC guides!
