Many thanks, Dennis. Yes, I too think it is an unusual flight pose. I had no idea that I captured this shot until I got home and dumped my images into Lightroom.

Not wild birds, these are 'Release Doves'. Selectively bred Rock Doves which are released at funerals, weddings and other events.
They were feeding on the local salt marsh today, presumably topping up their reserves on their way back to base after an event. :)
