This is one cute family portrait of six baby owls all snuggled up together!

And they're not only extremely sweet - they're also good news for nature too.

Because the number of barn owls has been getting dangerously low over the last few years and experts at The Wildlife Trust have expressed their concern, blaming super cold winters and springs, as well as wet summers.

But dedicated farmer Nicholas Watts, 71, has been monitoring the birds for over 30 years and has confirmed that this is the "best breeding year ever". Aww!

Nicholas has 13 pairs of barn owls at his farm and many have had second broods, lots of whom have a huge six chicks – just like these sweeties here!

Let's hope that the soaring success continues next year - and we get to see more sweet snaps like these!
