Feeding Spoonbill - Sharpa freshwater scrape

Spent some time after lunch today trying to identify what food items the Spoonbill is feeding on, not as easy as you might think!

However, digiscoping may help to solve the problem & I think

it may possibly be a small fish. When magnified several times I can see what appears to be a fish eye & a body shaped like a fish & maybe a fin but I am not certain & so far have not been able to ID it.

Any fish experts out there & I will gladly send you the original full size photo so you can magnify it several times?  (looks like a Three-spined Stickleback to me..ML)
