Description:

This looks like a meadow brown to me, but on one wing, the dark circle appears to have 2 white spots suggesting a gatekeeper. Maybe just a bit of variation?

was a Meadow Brown with very obvious double-spots, normally associated with Gatekeepers.
Obviously a more common variation than I (at least) had thought.
