In webmaster tools under "+1 Metrics" then "Activity" you can see "New +1s from your site" vs "New +1s from other sites". I'm under the assumption that "other sites" is exclusively SERPs at this point.
I'm getting around 15 +1s from "other sites" per day on average right now for my site, but havn't seen a jump as of Oct 18th which is the last day of data in WMT.

Can anyone think of an explanation for this
Well I've never used these social-networking buttons, and don't know much about them. But it's my impression that if your button gets clicked by someone who has a lot of followers, then some of those followers might also come to your site and click it too. Could that explain what you're seeing?
