Hi John,
the earliest spawning in my outdoor vivaria is similar to the  one given on your posting.  On Birdbrook Nature Reserve it used to be approximately the last week in May, in fact, approximately synchronous with the pool frog colony north of Uppsala in middle Sweden.

The dates for pool frog spawn seem weeks later than the earliest spawning for marsh frogs - I'm still waiting to some records to be entered on another page on this site regarding marsh frog spawning dates!
