report:

"The 2-m Faulkes Telescope South (Siding Spring, Australia)
robotically followed up GRB061007 (SWIFT trigger 232683; Schady et
al. GCN #5705) 2.28 min after the GRB trigger time.  We find a
fading source at the position reported by Rykoff et al. (GCN #5706)
and Schady et al. (GCN # 5705) and confirm it to be the afterglow of GRB
061007.

Observations and analysis are ongoing."
