County name in Location

Would it be possible to generate the county name automatically from the location and display it when looking at an observation? This would help with id as certain species are likely to occur in some counties and not others. Also flowering times are affected by the part of the country the plant is growing in. Currently if the observer does not include the county you have to click on the location and zoom out until you find somewhere you recognise, which is rather tedious. The Ancient Tree Hunt manages to do this from a grid reference so it should be feasible.
As an easier alternative would it possible just to include the county as a field to be keyed in as part of the location data?
