(IKI) report on behalf of  larger GRB  follow-up collaboration:

We observed the field of  the Swift GRB 130327A (Ukwatta, et al., GCN 
14331) with 0.45-m telescope of ISON-NM observatory  on Mar. 27, 
between (UT) 02:44:04 - 03:27:54.  We took  several unfiltered images of 
30 s exposures.  Within enhanced XRT afterglow position (Osborne et al., 
GCN 14335) we do not detect any new object.  We marginally (S/N~2.5, R~ 
20.3)  detected "second uncatalogued source" (Morgan et al., GCN 14333; 
Butler et al., GCN 14334) at RA , DEC (J2000): 06 08 09.06 +55 42 48.5. 
  A photometry of combined  image is based  on the USNO-B1.0 (R2) 
nearby  stars
