    Could it simply be that autumn is here?

     I hope so but it isn't particularly cold here at the moment

    It's not cold here in Norfolk, but the leaves are changing colour and falling nonetheless ... I think part of the trigger is day-length as well as temperature. 

    Coupled with a bit of 'transplant shock' your acer may well have decided it's autumn image
