Sounds from a Leytonstone garden

Blackbird in East London by Fugueur

Field recording of a bird singing at 9pm in the back garden. Aside from the passing planes turning over Wanstead Flats for their final approach into Heathrow you can hear the sound of the recent rain falling onto a carpet of ivy leaves.
The bird wasn’t actually in my garden but somewhere nearby.

I’ve assumed this is a blackbird, I know precious little about birdsong but my father, who is an old Chilterns man, was saying that “you always get Blackbirds in these London gardens”.
