tit

The green back combined with black crown and bib confirm this as a great tit. The black strip through the belly must be there but not visible at this angle. It's not very wide on a female anyway.

I'm pretty sure they are

I'm pretty sure they are Great Tits, stripes and all. As soon as I catch one a bit closer, I'll take some more photos to show their fronts.

Stripes

I've been ringing some recently which have barely had a stripe at all. As Bob says, females have a relatively narrow stripe at the best of times, but, when moulting as well, it can sometimes virtually disappear, for a short while.
