On the Farnell page for the Bourns diode you suggested there's this text:
Package / Case: 0603
Alternate Case Style: (same footprint as SOD-523)
No need for google, just a bit of reading beyond the first line on the

Step 5 is optional. Without it the fairchild diode is still #1
result. It just removes the schottky diodes that might confuse you.

It is marginally better than the search engine on Farnell's website.
And the prices more than make up for the less-than-google-grade search

It is cheaper, and it is a 1N4148 rather than some other diode that
might not be a drop-in replacement in your circuit.
