How do i identify bird rings found💯 (1 Viewer)

Can you help me read these bird rings please. They fit on my finger like a wedding ring. I would love to know what they are off. I was metal detecting when at least 5 of these came up on one field. Thank you

The first one at least looks like a closed ring (a continuous circular band with no gap); these are only fitted to captive birds, when very young. Your description of size suggests something big - presumably duck or goose. In the first link I gave you above, click the second set of photos and use that info.
