A rare survival of a 17th-century duck decoy
The Boarstall Duck Decoy provides a fascinating insight into a rare aspect of British rural life. Once a common sight on rural estates, this 16th-century invention for catching waterfowl slowly disappeared. Today, there are only a handful remaining.
The decoy at Boarstall is surrounded by beautiful woodland, with an array of spring flowers including a large display of bluebells. There is an abundance of bird life, with many nesting and feeding sites. The wood is also home to several species of bat.
