Doesn't quite match up but I've had loud and interesting noises come from leaves getting stuck in the air con filter/barrel. Which is exactly where your sound is coming from.

My guess would be your fan belt. Either the belt is on the way out or you an issue with tensioner pulleys (relatively cheap), alternator (slightly expensive) or the A/C Compressor (crazy expensive).
If you have roadside assistance get them out for a look and they should be able to tell you which of the above it is. Or, if you're handy, you can pull off the belt yourself and try to manually turn everything mentioned above. Should all turn silently and freely.

I doubt it's the belt as the car is a 2010 model, so relatively new and the belt should last much longer than this.

I am also leaning towards something finding its way through the upper air vents near the bonnet and lodging themselves in the air-con blower fan.

Re:


My first thought was fan belt also; the location of the sound was the only thing that made me think twice. The fan belt is on the right side of the engine bay, isn't it?

Yep right side. On mine I replaced everything (A/C compressor and all pulleys) except the alternator. All just got clagged with dust/mud. Obviously the petrol is different but I'd say just as susceptible to dust/mud.
