Definitely a Gatekeeper as it

Definitely a Gatekeeper as it has the two white 'pupils' in the eye-spot (which differentiates it from the Meadow Brown). Also this is a male as it has the dark scent scales (which can just been seen near the right eye-spot).

Beware

Although this is a Gatekeeper, beware the Meadow Brown can, albeit rarely exhibit two white spots as well.
