Are there trees nearby? I had this problem with the light I put on my garage,
due to tree limbs that were nearby.  I tried pointing the sensor as far away
from the tress possible, but they still set it off.  I finally decided that
part of the problem was that I had mounted the light too high up (ignoring the
maximum recommended height from the instructions) and relocated the sensor to
a lower spot, which solved the problem.

first set (turned out to be) was an elcheapo $25 buy from costco. It lasted
about 3/4 of a year before the sensor stopped working: motion would set the
lights off but then they would not shut off. Now I have a set working from
ACE. The retail cost was about $55. This set seems to be working fine.

Pretty much no matter the wind speed, they get (got) set off. I have the
current fixture on the least sensitive setting and it still just "flashes" all
night with the wind.
