Overwintering warblers

Blackcaps are now more common in winter according to a BTO survey a couple of years back, though these may be europeans coming in to replace the breeders who move south.
I was surprised by the number of recent records in Birdtrack - have a look at the maps by searching at http://www.bto.org/birdtrack/dailyresults/results20.htm

Might be worth putting some records in yourself
