I too have a south facing garden and also in a similar position where I am tryign to find the correct combination of plants to fill it with (on a tight budget) that will look nice and attract wildlife.
I have hedges down both sides which have birds in them all the time, as for plants I try to go for single flower varieties, or wildflowers. I have a lot of lavendar which really attracts the bees in the late summer. I have roses too but they seem to only attract aphids.
Sadly, all my berries are ina fruit cage as they are for me and not the birds but the flowers are for all the wildlife to enjoy.
The two links provided are excellent, thank you guys.
