Following reports of renewed activity of the neutron-star X- ray transient SAX J1810.8-2609 (GCN 6706 and 6707), we triggered our Swift monitoring program on very-faint X-ray transients when in outburst. As part of this program, SAX J1810.8-2609 is currently observed on a daily basis with Swift using ~1 ksec exposures, starting August 6, 2007. In all our observations so far, the source X-ray spectrum can be fit using an absorbed powerlaw model with a hydrogen column density of Nh~0.5E22 cm2 and a powerlaw index of ~2.
