Whirring Chirping noise from engine when hot at idle

Help needed guys. please.

Had this 1.4 125 ps about 3 months now and the last 2 months I have this noise
you can hear coming from the engine bay when I sit in the car at idle when the engine is warm if I lift the hood
I can not hear it only when we are sitting in the front of the car

Sounds like a pulley of belt catching as it goes round for the whir but then there is this
chirping and a faint metallic tinkle sound that blends with it.
This sound can be quite loud one day and very faint another.
latest ringtones
In at dealers today but they are trying to fob me off saying it was a stone caught on the brake backing plate
How does that work at a standstill at idle hmmm.
So I have told them to keep the car until they find it.

Has anybody had a similar problem at all.
The car has just done 17000 miles on a 15 plate.
