The AMI Large Array robotically triggered on the Swift alert for GRB 
160519A (D'Avanzo et al., GCN 19436) as part of the 4pisky program, and 
subsequent follow up observations were obtained up to 10 days 
post-burst. Our observations at 15 GHz on 2016 May 19.35, May 20.50, May 
22.61, May 26.50, and May 29.49 (UT) do not reveal any variable radio 
source within the BAT error circle (Stamatikos et al., GCN 19441), with 
3sigma upper limits of 202 uJy, 72 uJy, 84 uJy, 87 uJy, and 87 uJy 
respectively.

We thank the AMI staff for scheduling these observations. The AMI-GRB 
database is a log of all GRB follow up observations with the AMI, and is 
available at http://4pisky.org/ami-grb/.
