behalf of the Swift UVOT team report:

     The Swift Ultraviolet/Optical Telescope (UVOT) observed the field
of GRB 050410 (Fenimore et al., GCN 3219) starting at 12:46:04 UT on
10 April 2005.  We find no evidence for a source in the 5 arcsecond
radius XRT error circle (La Parola et al., GCN 3218) in the UVOT data.
The 3-sigma limiting magnitudes in a 3.5 arcsecond radius circular
aperture , and the coadded exposure times, are: V = 19.9 (392 s), B =
21.2 (1199 s), U = 20.9 (1326 s), UVW1 = 20.8 (399 s), UVM2 = 21.1
(399 s), and UVW2 = 21.7 (788 s).  The magnitudes reported in this
Circular are based upon preliminary flight calibrations.
