We observed the field of the Swift  GRB 160601A (Kocevski et al., GCN
19478) with AZT-33IK telescope of Sayan observatory (Mondy)  starting on 
June, 01 (UT) 15:00:41, i.e. 17 minutes after GRB trigger (GCN 19483). 
In a combined image we detected both NOT sources (Malesani et al., GCN 
19485) near enhanced XRT error circle (Evans et al., GCN 19484). 
Preliminary photometry (Vega) of the sources are following
