Strange noise when revving

So my Scooby is still sitting in the garage under its blanket while the DVLA sort out the V5 certificate. I haven't driven it for a couple of weeks and took it out for a spin on Friday, just to keep everything running nicely.

I noticed that, when accelerating, there was what I can only describe as a 'slushy' sound, a bit like a propeller moving through water. It only happened between idle and about 1500rpm for a second or so.

Is it likely to be anything serious? Or just something that'll get blown out when I have a really goo run?

I'd be interested to hear what others think. Mine does this too, and I assumed that it is normal and haven't worried about it.

Fluid levels are OK. I took it out for another run this week, and didn't notice the noise so much, so it might just be due to it standing for a while. We'll see, I'm sure something will explode once I'm driving it regularly, if there's a problem.
