Paul’s is quoted as saying “Growing up on a farm on the edge of the North Yorkshire moors, nature has been an obsession of mine from an early age. Several years ago I reared an abandoned fox cub who we called Pickle with good reason and brought her up with our two dogs until it was time for her release into the wild. Life is calmer now and although I still have dogs, life revolves around my garden”
