When I first bought My car it was covered with layers of dirt and grim and I had a leak back there.
After three Cans of Engine degreaser (I had to do the Transmission also) it turned out it was 98% a Valve Cover Gasket Leak. But, I could not see that until I cleaned the Engine.

If it is the Oil Feed Line they tend to leak at the bracket at the back of the Head. The Rubber wears off of the Bracket and vibration cuts into the Tube.
A small hole there can be repaired.

Clean off that area well and the area above where the Valve cover is and go for a drive and see what is wet and leaking.
