What type of fish are those Osprey eating?

As we have been watching the osprey bringing in fish we've been trying to identify the species they bring in. So far we have clearly identified peanut bunker and perch. One of our osprey watchers has also seen koi (which are an ornamental  sub species of carp bred and sold for their beauty, a favorite in ponds)  Carp is a very hardy fish, tolerating more extreme temperatures than other fish. They are like the goats of the fish world, eating everything in its path, snails, plants, fish eggs and vegetation.

If you spot a different species of fish email us and we will add it to the list, or get a screenshot of it and we will try to identify.
