My sister tells me she thinks it might be a female Gatekeeper, not a meadow brown because of the number of eyespots but my book says there is a lot of local variation of eyespots of both species. I've had another look at my book & computer images and the colouring looks so much more like meadow brown. Are there any butterfly experts out there who would know?
Thank you so much, Dean for confirming that it's a meadow brown.
