Our time series analysis of sixteen BV light curves of the chromospherically active binary V511 Lyr confirmed the $2\fd7$ rotation period uniquely. The seasonal periodicity changes of 3.8% indicated the presence of detectable surface differential rotation. The significant $2\fd67455$ periodicity in the light curve minimum epochs suggested that the strongest starspot formation in V511 Lyr was concentrated on one stable active longitude.

Key words: stars: individual: V511 Lyr (HDE 337518) -- stars: variable: general -- stars: activity -- techniques: photometric
