Churning noise after engine heats up - Ibiza 2011 1.2 TDI

I recently bought a 61 plate Ibiza Ecomotive 1.2TDI, which is running fine other than a intermittent churning noise after a journey 30 mins+. Some things I noticed:
- It only makes the noise when the engine is running and seems to increase when I rev the engine
- I can only hear it from inside the car, assuming the engine noise just drowns it out outside
- It seems to be coming from the bit circled in the attached photo (would appreciate if anyone could help me with what this is)
- Doesn't seem to impact the performance, but I've noticed it's taking less time running the car before it starts making that noise

I have booked in with a garage next week, but wanted to get an idea if anyone has experienced similar before, and if anyone can help identify that part circled in the image.

Thanks in advance
