Is it a Common or Rough-Legged Buzzard??
These photos are from north-eastern Greece, on 2nd of January 2021.
Thanks for your help :):)

strange enough, the clearcut dark trailing edge and all pale tail would indicate an adult bird but it seems to have a pale iris and plumage is reminescent of a pale juv Long-legged Buzzard. I don't know, median coverts are pale which again indicates a Common Buzzard. In the end I think it is at least 3cy.
