Fluctuating boost!!?!

Just found a new fault on my scoob tonight. (MY01 bugeye)

the scenario:

5th gear, 70mph, 2800ish rpm.

floor the accelerator and the boost goes up to the mapped 1.2 bar, then drops to 0.9, then fluctuates up and down from 1.2 to 0.9 bar.
The revs are not affected by this, im just watching the boost on my gauge and can feel the car boosting, then losing boost, etc etc

Any ideas? Anyone know the symptoms of needing a boost solenoid + pipe clean out? or is this the symptom of a boost leak?

ta for any advice
