It always surprises me at how big the juveniles are compared with the adults. Lovely capture. Spot on timing.

Beautiful shot Rachael captured at the perfect moment. My only thought ( just a personal opinion ) is that it is cropped just a tad too tight. You have fabulous detail on the birds but they do have the appearance of being tightly constrained. If the original would allow you could perhaps have shown a little more of the habitat.
I stress this is not a criticism but just a personal view.

Thanks Ron. I am very happy to receive any sort of feedback, especially from someone with wildlife shots of the quality of yours.
I fully agree about the crop, but the surroundings didn't allow a wider view, just more bird feeders and other garden distractions.
