Buteo in Fuerteventura (Canary Islands)

Hi everybody,

Could anybody tell me if the raptor in the picture is a Buteo buteo or a Buteo rufinus?

The picture was taken in Fuerteventura (Canary Islands) in September.

Thanks in advance

Longish legs, pale stripe above eye and white base of bill are more suggestive of rufinus to me, but I'm no expert.

I guess this is Buteo buteo insularum, the Common Buzzard ssp from the Canary Islands.
