Ignition on - electric motor noise?

Hi all.

Searched forums tonight for this but couldn't find anything except the air recirculation problem. I really don't think that it is this that I'm hearing. It's just that every time I switch the ignition on in my car theres an electric motor like whirring noise. Is it a fuel pump or something like that? I'm really curious as I've owned the car for several years, it has always done it and I've always wondered what it was!

Cheers, Bob.
