Oil leak

Ijust noticed some oil in the rear of my engine bay on the passenger side. There are no spots of oil where I park and the car runs great and pulls hard. Any idea what is causing the oil?

could be the valve cover or where the timing cover crosses the head/block right there. Blast it clean with brake cleaner and see how long it takes to come back.

I suggest to clean it with brake cleaner as well, so its nice and dry and check again.
