Default Ticking noise after oil & filter change

Dropped the oil today and changed filter. Nothing out of the ordinary, however it was my first time doing it on the Nav. It swallowed around 4.4-4.5L of oil.
After the job as the day went on i noticed a ticking noise. Sounds exactly like the electric lighters / igniters for gas stoves. That "tick tick tick" sound. Except louder. Cannot pin-point where its coming from, but seems louder from the sides of the car, as i walk to the front it's dulled by the sound of the engine.

Checked and re-check oil few times, remains steady below H. Oil filter is tight, as tight as i could get it by hand . There are no leaks that i can see.

After turning car off for a little bit, turning it back on, ticking is gone, but slowly gradually returns.

What am i looking at ?

Not sure, mate i ran out of daylight and didn't wanna disturb neighbours with engine revving as we're in a tight court. Although i know there is no set pattern to it, just a random tick every 1 to 3 seconds.

Ok, looked more into it today and it seems to begin only once engine is warmed up completely. And to scoobas question yes it does become more common with revs up.
Soome googling reveals, that tappets sometime needs some time to adjust to new oil ? Otherwise i can't think of anything else.

Mine does the exact same thing. I have no idea what it could be either. My Nav has only just done 6000km.
It's due for the 6 month service, so I'll see what Nissan says.

Has yours been doing it for a while mate or after an oil change? Mine started right after I changed filter and oil once engine warmed up.

I noticed it about a week ago and can't recall hearing it before then. Likewise the car had been warmed up. I haven't changed the oil in it yet so I can't relate it to that.
Could the alternator make a noise like that?

Definitely could. But mines right after the oil change and literally touching nothing else under the hood other than the filter, oil cap and the sump plug.
It's concerning me more now as i realized after engine warms up and under a few extra revs it turns into a very feint mini-rattle...
