Angry Clicking sound! Please Help!!

I have a 2008 328i manual coupe with 62,000 miles. My BMW recently starting making this clicking sound when i take off or reverse from a dead stop. It appears that the issue occurred after we had a snow day in my town and my car got stuck. The sound seems to be coming from the left rear axel/tire area. I have linked a video in which you can hear the clicking sound. Please let me know what may be causing the issue.

Have you checked for rocks or small pebbles in the brake shield(s)?

how about removing the wheel and looking around, put the car in neutral and spin the rotor and just maybe you will see something that loose, Have you done brake work lately? Loose caliper?
pull the caliper and rotor off check the Emergency brake, there are small brake shoes with spring clips, could be something in there,
if you cant do it take it to a shop have them pull the wheel and rotor
