Unidentified Bird Call - Woodland South-East England (1 Viewer)

Hi everyone,

Whilst down at my vegetable patch at the bottom of my garden which backs onto a stretch of woodland that goes back a couple of miles (very dense bluebell, broadleaf trees), I heard this very strange bird call that sounds like nothing I've ever heard before, I'm wondering if anyone can help me identify it as it was very unordinary and I've never heard it before, it was recorded at 21:06, just as it was starting to get dark (been a rainy and cloudy day).

Thanks in advance, Jake

I always struggle to hear these recordings (old age and tinnitus) but I think I can make out a song thrush there.

Yes song thrush. Note they repeat phrases. Also often sing at day end, sometimes when quite dark and frequently very loudly.

Thank you all for the reply, after listening to a song thrush on the internet I think you're right.
Apologies for how quiet the audio is, if you're interested I've attached an amplified version.
