Not quite sure what this is. Looks like a Gatekeeper but the markings are different.
I’ve only ever seen these at the south side of Manchester Airport, in an area of scrubland. Tue16Aug16.

I'd call it a gatekeeper as the double white spot in black is characteristic. However, those two additional black spots are unusual - something I've not seen before.

Many thanks Roy. It was the two black spots which threw me. Maybe it's a local variation.

www.ipernity.com/doc/304325/42823990/in/activity/42823990 throws more confusion into the pot, but the second white spot looks weaker than here.

Hmm, the plot thickens. Something to look out for next time..
