Great Tit
Parus major

Great tits are the largest of the tit family and are easily recognised by their 'teacher, teacher' call, although in addition, they have a wide range of calls. This bird is a male, as denoted by the broad black stripe down the front whereas the female has a thinner, more diffuse stripe.
