Disappointed with A7r IV - Feedback Please

I have had the A7r IV for a few weeks and just got the 100-400 for Bird Photography.

Today was my first outing and I was lucky enough to see a Kingfisher but I am not impressed with the image quality.

I consider myself a reasonable photographer so some issues may be user error but or maybe I am just expecting too much?

Ok I haven't filled the frame but when you zoom into 100% the images appear softer than I expected, this could be because I am pixel peeping on a 61mp sensor. However although not at the same angle etc etc but the Nikon looks way sharper that I took a couple of years ago.

I guess it could be camera shake but I assumed at anything above say 1/1000 sec would be fine at 400mm? But it was handheld so maybe a monopod may help?

Whats your opinions?

Cheers
