The nightjar Caprimulgus europaeus is a nocturnal summer visitor to Exmoor from sub-Saharan Africa, most often detected by the churring call of the male on summer nights. It occurs on rough heathland fringes where there is a mosaic of heathland, bracken and scrub. It also inhabits large clearfells on areas of former heathland. More on this species from RSPB

Bridgetown is a hamlet alongside the River Exe on the A369, which includes an old mill, packhorse bridge and a cricket pitch with a thatched pavilion. A peaceful walk leads along the river towards Winsford. Parking is in a lay-by from which a bridge crosses to the cricket pitch. There is a pub and rock faces carved with the dates when the turnpike was cut along the valley in the 1820s.
