Is there a checker for GC3YE4Q - Number of English Counties in Day.

I am sure I have done 5.

This used to show on Some Numbers tab but have since achieved 10 in mainland Europe so the stat has been updated.
Now I can't find the day I did 5 UK Counties.

Or is there a search facility available ?

I believe there is a checker available but there is a problem at the moment to access
the checkers.

There is no checker

To create one there is one problem from the checker "By counties I mean the county names: Leicestershire, Berkshire and Lancashire for example. NOT the geocaching.com counties such as Northeast England and Northwest England"

Thatmeans that the the information is not precaclulated by pgc and polygons of the counties have to be added to the checker. It is posibel to do that if somone priovides the polygons

the GenericPolyChecker can probibly be used if correct plygons are proovided. the might be a problem if the border polygons have to many points and the script will timeout

Ironically, PGC does actually work out counties for the UK to show them in the map, but doesn't show the 'regions' (such as Northwest England and Northeast England), despite the regions being what Geocaching.com uses. Odd.

For the record, last Sunday I found caches in 19 counties and 6 regions :)
