It’s a bit hard to see from here. Might be easier to have a look yourself. Take the bonnet off and look for the forward-most, oiliest bit. The droplets will be blowing back from there. When you’ve found the suspect area, clean up, run the tractor and reinspect.

In my case the timing cover seal was leaking and the pulley was flinging oil out, to then be blown back over everything. I think this is a fairly common leak.
