Christchurch Park Mistle Thrush

In Christchurch Park in the centre of Ipswich near the Mansion, there was this mistle thrush giving off the football rattle sound, a welcome piece of wildlife in the town centre on a freezing day.

The sudden boost at the end is the bird diving off to take up some issue with a bird in a yew in the graveyard
