Dance InformationIn the United Kingdom where the use of scarecrows as a protector of crops dates from time immemorial and where dialects were rife, there are a wide range of alternative names for scarecrows, such as Tattie Bogle (in Scotland) and Bodach-rocais meaning "old man of the rooks".
"Bogle" is Scots for "phantom".
