You need to adjust this. I don't have directions handy but you can download them from Shimano's European site. Sounds like the upper jockey wheel is hitting the cog. The b-tension screw will take care of this. It's the small screw pointing towards the rear of the bike near the derailleur mounting point. Dats wot i tink.

Here's the instruction (maybe-don't know if this will work)
