Thrush singing (UK)

Hello all,
This thrush has been singing outside my window for several evenings now, I thought it was a Song Thrush but wanted to make sure it wasn't Mistle. The light is too bad for photos so I got a recording of it. Thank you!

I'd never claim to be expert with bird song but the repetition of each phrase certainly says Song Thrush to me.

Certainly is a Song Thrush, lovely. Nice to hear from my old home town.
