This one was taken from much the same location as yesterday's; i.e. between Central Pier and North Pier, and I'm reliably informed that this is a flock of starlings. On a technical note: it might have been better if I'd used a slightly faster shutter speed than 1/30, but it does convey some of the movement as they wheeled and dived around the pier. They were quite amazing to watch.
