Saw object in picture after viewing it on the computer.

I just got a brand new camera - Nikon D70 with a 400mm lens - and started using it on the boardwalk of Brighton Beach in Brooklyn, N.Y. I was taking a lot of pictures of the sea, sand, sky, birds, and so on. After filling up the memory card with a lot of practice shots I took, I went home and transfered all my images. It then happened, where my dad and I notice a white speck at the upper right portion of a shot I took at a bird that was flying over the sea. I zoomed in on the image, and my hair on my body stood up. I don't know, but it seems to be something. I knew it can't be a bird because it was a shot that I took at distance, and a bird would not stand out that big from a long distance shot. I knew it couldn't be dust or something right in front of my camera, because the image is too far. The picture was during the day time, so I don't think it would have been a star or something. Later on during the day, I went to another venue to practice soccer. In this park, I sat on the bench with my dad, and we were talking about the clouds. It so happend to be, that we saw something white in the sky again. It was day time also. I didn't get a chance to take a picture of it, because clouds began to cover it up. I don't know what we saw, but it is very mysterious.
