1976 XJ6 3.4ltr - battery issue

Fitted a new battery last weekend after some starting issues. I think the battery removed was the original one. So with a new battery installed the car started perfectly.

Flat battery again yesterday yet it was fine on Saturday. Engine started perfectly on Saturday.

I have checked for the obvious culprits such as internal/external lights being left on, all off. Radio, off, heater controls, off.

Something is clearly draining the battery. I don't think it has any electrical connections but the bonnet has been left open for a number of days.

Any ideas ?
