Ring on a redpoll

Hi Guys ,
I photographed a Meally redpoll to the South of Maastricht in The Netherlands. In the picture you can see a ring.
I think I can read: SSELS......in the bottom row.
Could this be from Brussels in Belgium?
Greetings,
LP

Yes, but with only the 118 of the ring number that's probably about as far as you can go. As I recall (I lived in Maastricht in the late 1960's) the border is only a few kms away. so could be quite a local bird.
