Greek bird of prey

This is the only photo I managed to take of a large bird which rested briefly on top of a pole some 50 yards away. I have identified it tentatively as a buzzard because of its general shape, because of the glimpse of a down-curved beak when it turned its head, and white on its underwing when it flew away. We have never identified a buzzard here before, but Handrinos and Akriotis describe it as a "Common and widespread resident" so there is no reason why it should not be here. Is there enough information in the photo to enable a more positive identification?
