Hi!
I'm afraid it is a Buzzard(Buteo Buteo).

Re: Correction

No, it is a young eagle with typical white painting, which makes it similar with Buteo buteo. But as you know well, Buteo's territory reaches max. up to 1300 m a.s.l. and its wingspan in EU is up to 1,3m. Note - this footage was taken at 2400 m altitude and the wingspan is about 2 meters....
Check it out in this page - section birds - golden eagle (video footage):
