Help with oil in the valve cover breather pipe

Hi All,

I noticed today that there is a small amount of oil coming from the pipe that leads from the valve cover to the air intake pipe just after the maf.

Any idea why this would be happening? I am planning to remove the throttle body and clean it this week when I replace the thermostat so I would like to fix this before I bother cleaning it.
