LIKE many parts of the country, the Black Country tends to look its best at this time of year, with a vast array of autumnal colours running through our woods like a forest fire, and exquisite sunsets and sunrises to enthral us when we're either going to work in the morning or returning home at night.

Here at the Bugle we try to keep our readers and followers on our website, Facebook and Twitter abreast with what's happening in the natural world upon our doorstep, and what better way is there than to use photographs of our Black Country in stunning Technicolor?

We are absolutely delighted with the record number of hits we have received in the last seven days after posting two views on the Bugle's Facebook page. Currently the record stands at just over 5,100 hits for a view of Netherton Reservoir at Sunrise.

It all goes to show that the Black Country, a place that stirs a sense of pride in the natives, although often associated with derelict land, factories and urban sprawl, can offer scenes of beauty to rival anywhere in England's green and pleasant land.

We feel the accompanying photographs do justice to the region's autumnal magnificence.
