engaging clutch, little RPM increase. why?

I noticed that with the engine warm on a stop (engine at lower rpm), if I engage the clutch the engine rpm increase a little, from 6-700 rpm to 900 or so.

why? it it normal? 520i E60

Yes, it's normal. For saving some fuel the RPM is reduced to minimum when engine power is not needed. And it's raising it back when depressing the clutch.
