Bit Of A Mystery

The Western Pipestrella bats that summer up in the crevices next to the vigas on our front porch apparently showed up yesterday, March 26th. Katie and I were sitting out a bit ago, and I saw one head out into the dusk. So, what's the mystery? Even though this has been the warmest winter ever, the bats are late. Last year they arrived on March 11th, but this year they have appeared a bit over 2 weeks later than last Spring. Why?

PS - the geckos are out in force hunting around the outside lights also - but I apparently didn't note when they first appeared last year.
