star like but not

myself and my fiancée were out watching the stars .... it was a clear evening with multiple satellites and aircraft going over.
Being from the UK im used to light pollution so this was very special - no light pollution at all!

my attention was drawn to what at first appeared to be a satellite - it was about 30 degrees above the horizon and was brighter than previous satellites. It was traveling from the NW towards the North at a 'normal' satellite speed.
However - it was bouncing / jumping up and down. I would describe it as having a similar appearance to a trace from an ECG monitor.

I asked my fiancée if she was seeing the same as me and she confirmed that she was.

i know what a satellite looks like - i know what starlink looks like. I work at an airport and am familiar with all known aircraft.
I have no idea what this was......
