Groaning /wearing noise from engine bay

Hi Guys,

Been off for a couple of weeks and started my car yesterday, battery was flat...but other than that I jumped it, left it to idle for a while like over half an hr whilst I was unpacking things.....

noticed last night a weird noise ive never heard before very faint from the inside so went out to investigate and there is a weird wearing/groaning noise

Any ideas what this noise might be?

Car is 2008
133k on clock
Daily 120 mile commute on Motorway
Oil is changed every 4 months or so as a result

on cold starts there is sometimes I rattle I lead to a chain tensioner which I have been told could be culprit.

noise sounds like a bearing, and sounds like its from under the rocker cover,
Could it be a water pump? timing area?

Any ideas?

I thought valve clearance only made tapping noises? This is more of a groaning bearing type noise
