Can anyone tell me if this ticking is normal or not? It does not do it when its cold, only when operating temperature is reached.

Hydraulic lifter tick?
Check the oil level is not low, and a change of oil may help. Mine can do it a bit some times if its only been on short runs and its from a cold start. One day I'll mention it as service but I have plenty of warranty left.
