文字稿

In the Roman twilight, nature’s great dancers flock to the stage.

在罗马的暮色中,大自然的精巧舞者们涌向舞台。

The acrobatic twirls like wisps of smoke.

它们在空中矫捷地盘旋,恰似缕缕青烟。

A synchronised spectacle of breathtaking beauty.

群鸟齐飞,蔚为壮观。

The starlings migrate in winter, south to Africa, nesting at night in central Rome for warmth, flying in formation to avoid predators.

欧椋鸟在冬天南迁到非洲,晚上在罗马市中心筑巢取暖,排成编队航行以躲避捕食者

A murmuration it’s called, and this city of art marvels at the show.

这就是所谓的 “椋鸟群飞” 现象,这座艺术之城对这场空中表演赞不停口。

But beneath their charm, Rome is rotting, and it’s a hell of a mess.

但在魅力四射的鸟群下方,罗马却各处散乱,脏乱不堪。

Mark Lowen, BBC correspondent
In the cold light of day, the other side of these gorgeous birds is clear. And for those unlucky enough to be in the wrong place at the wrong time, it is not exactly sightly, it can be a safety hazard, and I can tell you that even with a mask, the stench is rancid.

马克·洛文     BBC通讯员
“壮观事后的越日白日,这些瑰丽的鸟儿的另一面则清晰可见。对付那些不幸在错误的时间呈此刻错误的所在的人来说,同创娱乐app,这一面并不雅观,甚至大概是一个安详隐患。我可以汇报各人,纵然戴着口罩,也是臭气熏天。”

“I slipped on the droppings when it was muddy,” this man says, “the world has invented everything, just not bird underpants!”

“有一次,泥泞不堪的阶梯上满是鸟粪,我滑倒了。” 这位男士说到,他还说:“人类发现了一切,就是没发现给鸟穿的内裤!”

Beside the ancient forum, a new attempt to try to solve the problem.

在这个陈腐的广场旁边,人们在实验用一种新要领办理这个问题。

City officials shining lasers onto trees, which the birds dislike, prompting them to move on.

市当局官员用欧椋鸟讨厌的激光照射树木,促使它们继承航行。

The project is focused on Rome’s tourist heart, in a bid to clean up its image.

这个项目重点维护罗马的主要旅游景点,以改进都市形象。

Marco Leva, Environmental Officer
This doesn’t cause the birds any stress – it’s more like a nuisance for them. I do this work, but I’m actually a nature lover. We’re not stopping them from sleeping, we’re just telling them to find another location, and it works ­– this tree used to be completely full, and now there are about ten percent of what there were.

马可·莱瓦      情况官员
“这个要领不会给鸟带来任何不适和压力,对鸟来说,激光更像是一个惹人讨厌的对象。固然我做这项事情,但我其实是个热爱大自然的人。我们并没有阻止鸟睡觉,而只是汇报它们去找另一个处所休息,这个要领很管用,这棵树上曾经停满了鸟,此刻树上的鸟只有已往的10%阁下。”

In ancient Rome the starlings were seen to augur the gods’ wishes. Centuries on, these dazzling creatures keep visiting. How man and nature can coexist is the eternal problem of the Eternal City.

在古罗马,人们认为欧椋鸟预示着神明的愿望。几个世纪以来,这些刺眼的生物不绝拜访。人与自然如何共存?这是罗马这座永恒之城所面对的恒久问题。
