It looks as though the driveshaft seal into the bell housing is leaking, although oil leaks can be difficult to isolate due to the way it spreads around when the car is moving.

The best thing to do is get under the car, and clean as much oil off as you can see using something like brake cleaner, put some cardboard underneath the engine and gearbox and let the car run at idle for a while.

Leave the cardboard under the car overnight and the oil should reappear, either around the leaky component or on the cardboard.

Cheers, looking online thought it was driveshaft or rear main seal.

Car was in garage for a clutch change in March so have called them to look at it. Few posts online sho it as being common if reconnected incorrectly.

Sounds probable, I always ask them to double check the seals, they often get lost!
