I guess it's a butterfly rather than a moth but so what?

Spotted these on the White Cliffs today. No idea what most of them are.

I think the top one might be a Large White; the next one down looks like it's a Marbled White. The bottom one looks like a Small Heath or a Meadow Brown; the one above with the ragged wings looks like a Comma.

I don't think it is a comma - too raggety for that and I have seen commas before.

Re Devid Martin's photos, 1: small white (the large white has much blacker markings and is ... larger); 2 marbled white (I think. Not familiar with this species) 3 - red admiral; 4 - peacock; 5 - no idea, but it isn't a comma. The ragged edges of its wings have been caused by damage, not design. 5 - clouded yellow, I think. One source I checked said it is mostly confined to the south, but another said it can be found all over the UK, mostly close to the coasts. My guess is that with climate change, all bets are off with regard to migratory species like this.
Oh, Bach without any doubt. Bach every time for me.

This beastie I saw this morning was huge. It first I thought it was a piece of wood. Wingspan at least 10 cm. Mr google suggests it's a privet hawkmoth.
