Wind burn... Japanese acers can't cope with a windy situation this is typical wind burn damage.

Could be sun/wind scorched, they prefer a shady area and sheltered.

I would say wind and/or sun scorch and also probably a bit of drought damage. Make sure it gets plenty of water and shelter from the wind. Should be fine next year.

many thanks for your speedy responses, I half guessed it could be wind related - I will keep hydrating it to keep it looking good.
