Sønderho Gamle Fuglekøje - Duck Decoy

Sønderho Duck Decoy is located at the coast south of Albue Bay. During the last few years the decoy has been renovated.

The decoy is open every day.
Dogs are allowed but must be in a leash.

A duck decoy is a large scale trap with netted, curving pipes running off a pond. It was used to catch ducks for food, however, today the decoys are used only to ring wild ducks for research purposes.

Fanø was the only location in Denmark for four decoys to be constructed, two of which were in use until 1931 when the original use and purpose of decoys was prohibited.

Sønderho Old Duck Decoy is open all day long - please remember to close the gate. Entrance is free.
