Skipper identification, Algarve

Took these shots a few days ago near Lagos. I assume the first is a False Mallow Skipper (due to location) but I have no idea what the second, I assume, Skipper is (very much a novice with Butterflies) - any advice appreciated.

Skippers are tricky. I'd guess Gegenes nostradamus for the second (but I'll happily be corrected).

Thanks Martin, I don’t have the experience to even guess at the ID so appreciate your response.
