It looks like an Osprey's nest. I don't know if there are Ospreys in Poland as  I'm not familiar with European birds so wait for more people to comment. 🙂

Yes, these are Ospreys, and they look like nestlings. Ospreys are present in Poland, however it's a different subspecies. American Osprey is P. h. carolinensis, and the nominate subspecies of Europe is P. h. haliaetus.

Thank you for the information. It is really great to know!

it will make me feel less homesick that it is the same bird, i think!

is it obvious physical characteristic that makes them different subspecies or down to dna level?

 

sorry my english sucks.

 

this is a big bird for a small state!

Apparently the ones in the US show a bit more contrast between the back and the belly, and they have fewer spots on the upper breast on average.
