Fish Supper

Anybody any idea what the fish is? Looks a bit too broad for a Sand Eel but I don't know much about fish. The bird is an adult Common Tern (Sterna hirundo), just starting to moult out of breeding plumage with white flecks in the crown. This one was photographed at Seaforth, where they breed. It will soon be migrating south to spend the winter off West Africa.
