Hopefully yours will be the same and will settle down as the engine gets thoroughly run in.
Thanks for the reassurance; in the good old days of running bangers I wouldn't have been worried, but coming from 2 diesels which didn't use a perceptible drop in a combined total of 40k miles, I was initially alarmed to note what looked like 1/4 litre in 1k.
Hopefully it'll level off over the next few thousand miles.
