Sounds like a corroded battery cable. You can find that with a test light and a helper to turn the ignition switch. A bad cable will make the starter clunk pretty loudly once each time you turn the ignition switch to "crank". If you're hearing the starter relay clicking, that is a lot lighter sound and can be hard to hear inside the car.
