Strange Turbo noise

Hi. I have recently bought an Impreza wrx 2007 Hawkeye and have noticed a strange sound just as the turbo starts to kick in. I can only compare the sound to knocking of metallic blinds. It starts in 2nd gear at 2k revs then disappears and then comes back again in 3rd gear at 2k revs. Iv been told that its the turbo winding up early but im not so sure. Has anyone had the same issue?

Mechanic said it was nothing to worry about and that I cam only hear it as my car is so quiet. Car had full service 2 days ago and diagnostic check with no faults. Just doesnt sound right to me.

A motorsport garage and my local garage both said it was nothing
