“Permanex”, Kensington: grumpy raptor

“Permanex” burglar alarm, Kensington and Chelsea • My final hawkish bird represents Permanex, whose name has nothing to do with avians. Therefore there’s no clue as to what species this grumpy raptor is, but I’m guessing the scruffy fellow’s a kestrel. Permanex specialise in guarding scaffolding, and I’m coming across their alarms with increasing frequency; it’s surprising there are still so many large building projects going on in this horrible financial climate, but that’s London for you. • Spotted: Cheval Place, Kensington and Chelsea, London, SW7, England, 2010 • Politics: In the Conservative constituency of Kensington
