Default Engine "ticking" noise EW10A RFJ 2.0 Petrol

I've just done the engine front end (timing belt, idler, tensioner, water pump, accessory belt) and it runs sweet as a nut but there is a quite audible "ticking" noise which sounds like valve lifters to me which quietens down a bit a few moments after starting but is still there.

The engine is so quiet when it runs it may be just its normal noise but I thought I would check, this is my first petrol Pug.

It is definitely not the belts, the noise is from around the intake valve cover area. Could it just be the injectors firing?

Thanks

Is the oil old maybe! If so new oil and filter might help.

Interesting idea. I've only recently purchased the car (no service history) and was distracted by the leaking water pump and chunk out of the accessory belt so haven't gotten to that yet. I'm going to listen closely before and after the oil change and see what it sounds like.
