zonal statistics result is empty table

I am trying to run zonal statistics

zone data = buffered point data (buffer distance = 3km)
raster layer = rainfall = a floating point file with values from 0 to 253.65

the result I get back is an empty table.

when I run the analysis on the point data only, i.e., not the buffered data, I do get results back. So this makes me think the raster layer is fine but it is the buffered point data file that is incorrect.

A previous thread on a similar problem indicated the problem could be related to projections and cooridnate systems, so I had a look and although both files are set to WGS coordinate system, the data frame is in decimal degrees.

Any thoughts?
