And I say that it is not a UFO, until there is a better video released the believers will see one thing and the skeptics another.
Its not an unidentified flying object?
Oh, please inform the masses of what it is, since you have either forgotten what "UFO" means, or have identified it.

These are most likely either migrating/fleeing puffins or geese. It has that classical bend to it from flying birds in formation:
Not enough time elapses on the video to show their trajectory of flight. And since this volcanic plume is so immense, these guys may be a couple of miles out from the ash plume.

Arent there poisonous gases involved with the eruption?? I think the "geese" explanation is very iffy, but in the same token, too far to really see What it is. I am not making a call on this one, birds or otherwise. Good catch none the less!
i did geology at university
though not quite as intense as a Pyroclastic flow. ash clouds get bloody hot.
Pyroclastic flows can reach 1,000 °C or more. these are the ash flows that kind of avalanche down from the volcano. as im sure everyone reading this knows heat rises
any bird riding a thermal with a source heat ranging in the 1,000's is going to be dead pretty dam quick.
that before you even consider the poison nature of the gases
"The volcanic gases that pose the greatest potential hazard to people, animals, agriculture, and property are sulfur dioxide, carbon dioxide, and hydrogen fluoride"
no bird is going to be hovering in that for more than a second or 2 before either bursting into flames or suffocating.
