So get ready for four rounds of fun questions on nature, movies/books/TV, music and nature photos. 

 Jo Foat, communications officer at Surrey Wildlife Trust, said: ‘Here’s something a bit different to look forward to this weekend. Every year for 30 Days Wild, we hold a Big Wild Weekend with hands on events and open days. We’ve adapted it this year so that everyone can still join in from home in whatever way they can. With music, events and activities to enjoy online, families can get involved and even enjoy a wild sleep out in a tent outside or an indoor den.  So get back to nature, sleep under the stars, listen to the wildlife around you and wake up to a magnificent dawn chorus.’
