Just 3 notes but recorded very nicely. Clearly a Grey Butcherbird.

Heard this birdcall that I couldn't identify today in Forster Crescent, 
Yarralumla, opposite the Singapore High Commission. The bird was perched at the 
top of a Eucalypt making this call every 15-20 seconds. Couldn't get a decent 
look and didn't have binoculars as I was out cycling, but I recorded the call 
on my phone. What is it?
