Disappearing patch

I am trying to create a large patch, which doesn't seem to 'take' - i.e. the results show up during the session that I am on the computer, but when I return to look again, the results have disappeared. eBird seems to discourage large patches i.e. https://help.ebird.org/customer/en/portal/articles/1006845-yard-and-patch-guidelines & I don't have the disappearing problem with smaller patches, so I am wondering if there is a limit to the number of locations that can be included in a patch - does anyone know?

I'm not sure if there is a limit or not, but did you include locations from more than one county? If so then that particular patch will not appear at the County level but will appear at the State/Province level or higher.

J, thanks for your reply, I was viewing at the World level and the patch did not appear. I suspect there were too many locations included so I am now wondering what the maximum number of locations is.
