Love the kite (excellent pose for a BIF with a great background) and the Shore birds (great composition)!

4 Leaping Mud Skippers
Mudskippers are interesting fish, being one of the few types that can exist for any period of time out of water. They retain water in their gill chambers to keep the gills moist, and can exchange oxygen through their skin (when moist) like frogs and salamanders do. Males keep territories and defend them against one another. I tinkered with your silhouetted image a bit for those who are not familiar with these fish - I hope you don't mind.

Here is a link to an interesting story about a similar mudskipper with a photo of displaying individuals like these:
