Hello,
I agree with both of your IDs.
The Treecreeper is harder for me, and I struggle to judge the fine/subtile features with confidence in your pictures (no offence you know), but the hind-claw seems to be really long (=monster), so a Eurasian Treecreeper is ok. Please note, that ST-Treecreeper becames (tendencially) greyer towards the eastern part of range
