Subject

S. T. Holland (CRESST/USRA/GSFC) and K. L. Page (U Leicester)
report on behalf of the Swift/UVOT team:

      The Swift/UVOT observed the field of GRB 110625A starting 127 s
after the BAT trigger (Page et al., 2011, GCNC 12088).  Settled
observations started at 205 s.  We do not detect an optical afterglow
(or the source reported by Im et al., 2011, GCNC 12095) at the
UVOT-enhanced XRT position (Page, et al., 2011, GCNC 12092) in any of
the UVOT filters.  Preliminary 3-sigma upper limits for detecting a
source in the finding charts and in the co-added images, are

     The quoted magnitudes and upper limits have not been corrected
for the large, but uncertain, Galactic extinction along the line of
sight to this burst (E_{B-V} = 10.52 mag, Schlegel et al. 1998, ApJS,
500, 525).
