I simulated this circuit with zero, but haven't gotten the results to match the measurements above.

Removing the DC readout chain from the circuit does not affect the AC response.
Perhaps something to do with the (currently unmodeled) capacitance of the diode? I think this forms a necessary part of the resonant circuit. The gain is also suspiciously low.
Edit: Indeed, simply adding the 'typical' shunt capacitance (9pF) and a small series resistor (10 Ohm) gives the right qualitative response
The python notebook is in /users/aaron/WFS/electronics.
The DC response flattens off at ~20dB by ~mHz, which also seems longer than the timescales I saw while measuring; I'm not sure I have some of the AD827 parameters correct (eg 'delay')
I came across this nice note on photodiodes.
