Following the detection of GRB 220501A by Swift (D'Ai et al., GCNC 31982) and Fermi (Fermi GBM team, GCNC 31983, Roberts et al. GCNC 31988), the 0.3m BOOTES-1B robotic telescope in Mazagon (Huelva), southern Spain, automatically responded to this burst on May 1 at 20:14 UT (~22.3 min after trigger), right after the twilight and at high airmass. In the co-added frame (38 x 10 s, clear filter), no source is detected within the BAT error position (D'Ai et al., GCNC 31982) down to 17.5 mag, which is consistent with the non-detection reported by Klotz et al. (GCNC 31984).

We thank the staff at INTA-CEDEA for their excellent support.
