I think it is a Superb Fairy-wren (that might have been hidden from view, in 
the bush).

This faint repeated call was being made for ages from a bush overhanging my 
back fence. I assume it is a bird? The only birds I could see in the tree was a 
male Blackbird in mature plumage/colouring, but do they ever make a sound like 
this? It wasn’t obviously calling, but I couldn’t see any other likely source.
