“You’re looking pleased with yourself,” Ianto commented as Tosh burst into Jack’s office without knocking. The door was open, so it wasn’t a problem.
“I am. I think I finally have a solid lead on the mystery of the weird holes people have been seeing around Splott!” Tosh’s smile lit up the room. “You really have to see this!”
Jack and Ianto didn’t have to be told twice; they eagerly followed the tech expert down to her workstation, where she’d been scouring CCTV footage from various cameras, both public and private, for the last few days, ever since the reports first started coming in of people finding peculiar holes poked in their lawns and flowerbeds.
As the ‘vandalism’ occurred mostly in gardens and parks, camera footage of affected locations was understandably scarce, and the fact that the holes appeared overnight complicated matters, but at last the culprit had been caught in the act.
On Tosh’s monitor was a still photo of a large, brown bird with its beak thrust into the grass verge outside a row of houses.
Ianto stared. “Is that a kiwi?”
“Either that or an alien disguised as one.” Tosh said.
Jack grinned. “Mystery solved.”
