report on behalf of GRB IKI FuN:

We continued observations of the ZTF20acozryr/AT2020yxz (Coughlin et 
al., GCN  28841) with AZT-33IK telescope of Mondy observatory.  We 
detect the optical transient (Coughlin et al., GCN  28841; Xu  et al., 
GCN 28846; Zhu et al., GCN 28854; Mao et al., GCN  28861; Belkin et al., 
GCNs 28862, 28875;  Mao et al., GCN 28863; Kumar et al., GCN 28876; 
SungHak  et al., GCN 28880) at redshift  z = 1.105 (Xu et al., GCN 
28847) associated with afterglow of GRB 201103B (Ursi et al., GCN 28831; 
Svinkin et al., GCN 28844; Evans  et al., GCN 28858).

Preliminary photometry of the afterglow is following

The photometry is based on the same stars used in GCNs 28862, 28875.
