Whine noise at idle..

Can't hear it at the normal idle speed, but if I rev it slightly there is a whining sound coming from outside the car, ive only noticed it since its last service about a month ago.

My EP3 used to make a similar sound at full throttle in 3rd and 4th, sounds a bit like a supercharger

Sounds exactly like what I have, doesn't seem to affect the car, its just annoying not knowing what it is. I was going to take it to Honda tomorrow but if they can't find it then i'll leave it for now.

Strangely it didn't sound as loud today so i'll try and film it tomorrow.
