Hello again Mike,

I agree with your IDs.
Perhaps No. 4 is yet another Brown Argus. Look at the relative position of these two spots :

Hi Mick, you say the first two images are of the same female Chalkhill Blue. Yet when maximising the images the hindwing margin of the first appears to be blue.

It's a bit of an aberrant on the underside, but it looks more Adonis than Chalkhill to me.

Thanks Chris/David, and indeed the first is NOT the same as the second photo. My apologies!

Mick
