Hi - that's a Speckled Wood, though a very dark one with unusually obscure markings, with the hindwing spots noticeably reduced.

Cheers,

Dave

That's a very striking specimen. I don't think I have ever personally seen such a dusky individual as that (and I've seen multi-thousandsof Speckled Woods!!)
