OBSERVATION REPORT A. Oksanen, P. Tikkanen and A. Oikarinen on behalf of Nyrola observatory GRB Team report: A 24 x 16 arcmin field covering the HETE WXM and SXC error circles of GRB 030328 (GCN 1978) was imaged with the 0.4m SCT at the Nyrola Observatory starting at March 28, 2003 21:25 UT, 10.0 hours after the burst under poor conditions (high airmass, haze and aurora borealis). Total of 18 180s Rc-exposures were sigma reject combined and compared to the Digitized Sky Survey (DSS2R). No new objects were found to the image limit of R=19. The position of the optical afterglow of GRB 030328 (Peterson & Price, GCN 1974) was examined carefully, but the OT had faded bellow the image limit.
