The leaves on my Acer have turned green

We have a lovely Red Acer, about two years old. It is healthy in a large pot on the patio, in a sunny position. Over the past 3 or 4 weeks the lovely red leaves have turned green. It is not new growth that is green, the old leaves have turned from deep red to bog standard green. Is it in too much direct sunlight or is there another reason for this change?

On plant Acer Palmatum Bloodgood




How very odd - this usually happens because the plant's got too much shade, not too much sun! Is it otherwise healthy? Because I can see what look like little white flecks all over the leaves?
